How To

Endre Farkas

By being.

By saying that the take out counter is closed.
By adjusting to the rhythm of the train to the sea
where one version has it beginning.



By being alone.
By learning the illusion of leaving everything behind is real.
By confessing your sins to a billboard Jesus.
By buying a HOW TO book
one version has it.



"At the beginning," they tell you.
And I'm fool enough to believe it.



"In the middle;" they tell you.
And I'm fool enough to believe it.



"At the end," they tell you.
And I'm fool enough to believe it

as one version of it.



With a faith that is absurd
...yet...
With a preposition
With The Muses
With a toke in The Dayniter
With a prayer to the void
one version has it.



By breathing.
By letting go
even when you don't want to
one version has it beginning.
