Pissing in the river/I can do anything

Pissing in the river
watching it rise
I can do anything

Walking through the sea
watching it part
I can do anything

Making land from water
on a Sunday afternoon
I can do anything

Giving birth to a child
who refuses to do what I want him to
because he has a mind of his own

I can do anything

This poem was conceived during a Patti Smith live show. She’s an inspiration.
