Winnie the Pooh is a Basic Bitch
By Raul Cañas

Breathe in, breathe out.

Hold a crayon
and make circles
inside the lines
until Winnie
the Pooh is all
filled in. He can
be yellow or
blue, then color
the background which
has no lines but
gives the drawing
depth and beauty,
then imagine
what could make the
picture better,
then create it.
Make many lines
and connect them
until figures
are formed that tell
a story, then
keep on drawing
until the page
is packed filled with
ideas that seem
random but make
great sense to you.

Breathe in, breathe out.

When there’s no more

room but you feel
the need to draw,
go to a wall
that lacks pictures
and posters and
draw everywhere
until you have
formed a mirror,
and when that wall
is filled with each
truth and beauty
available,
go to other
walls and knock down
every picture
and poster and
fill every inch
with more silly
senseless ideas.

Breathe in, breathe out.

Repeat over
and over and
over until
you have built a
house, but don’t stop.

Breathe in, breathe out,

and start on the
next house, then make
a neighborhood.
then make a town,
then a state, then
a country, then
a continent,
then a planet,
then galaxies,
then make a whole
universe, then

breathe in, breathe out.

Stand back and look,
admire and
realize that
Winnie the Pooh,
a simple bear,
has the world at
his hands. Godly.
