And we shall name the beast Harold

Find an empty room and
fill it with animals: dogs, cats, I don't know,
salamander, and when

you think there are too many,
find smaller animals, like fleas or worms
or improv comics, and

close the door. Leave for a while, the
minimum recommended time is several thousand
years, and when you return

and open the door, all will have
converged, all will be one mass of legs and
arms and eyes and

bippety-bops, all seeking to
be expelled from the room in one gasping
mass, to move out

into the world, and there
to dwell, seating on the grass, tails wagging
in wind, every yes met

with an and.
