questions for a Robert Motherwell painting

How would you sleep
if you could sleep?

How would you dance
if you could dance?

How would you kill
if you could kill?

How often would you kill
if you could kill?

If you were to become an accomplished master
of only one weapon,
would it be a handheld weapon
or something that fired projectiles?

If you caught a whale
and cut his belly open
and there were an old man in there
would he say,
“Thanks, but what took you people so long?”
or
“Now why’d you have to go and do a foolish thing like that?”

Would you have many friends?

Would you love
many shallowly
or few deeply?

Would you brush your teeth
three times a day
or only once
or none?

Would you brush your parents’ teeth
three times a day
or only once
or none?
