things I shouldn’t do anymore: a slightly revised list

run to catch the metro
another will be along soon
and there’s no one waiting
at home anyway

drink more than one bottle of wine
the mouth gets numb
and you can’t taste it
or tell if it’s red or white

spend more than 15 minutes
playing solitaire
and try not to cheat
accept losses more than wins

eat hot dogs
for breakfast
that’s why they invented
cornflakes and yogurt

tell stories to people
half the time
they don’t listen
and it just makes me
homesick for my friends

talk to myself
in public
someday someone
will know enough English
to punch me in the mouth

display so many of your pictures
it’s pointless to have them
staring at me
from the bookshelves

love someone unselfishly
because next time
I’m going to be a little selfish
and expect the woman
to love me a little bit, too
