[Performance. Make your best guess at pronunciation and performance, using the codes you already know, in the light of what is actually shown here i.e. read what is actually here, not what you think should be here. If possible, perform it aloud and not just in your head. Multivoice is more than ok, but try to avoid pleasing melodies. Musical instruments may be used with, but not instead of, the voice; though, in this case, I counsel against them.]

How to Exist

Close your eyes and drool into your hat.
Squat on your phone and fart.
Open your eyes and stare at a pea for 5 hours.
Wait for time itching in your palm.
Name your fork a key.
Walk in the sea and shoulder a brick.
Drop your skin in a suitcase and take a nap.
Drink your pee and tear a sheet into 4ths.
Hold a face against your face and remember the future.
Sink your head in a bowl of linguine and
     listen to the instructions of murmuring light.
