For the sake of finishing something, for once!
And not just arriving at a state of completion
But going way too far with the thing.
We can take this beyond what was cleanly prescribed
So the mystery result we end up with looks nothing like
The concept we decided on nearly a year ago.
We've passed the idea around, sliding it across Formica
Tables in diners and passing it over friends' shoulders on couches;
A collaborative project so far restricted to speculation.
We drew up plans against an endless seascape, but
For fear of going overboard, we drew back from the rail
Whenever it came time to take action.
But we should not compromise our vision. Tear that letter! and also
Let's smash letterboxes and drown postcards and slaughter postmen.
Bomb the post office, run courier vans into the highway median.
