Instructions For Topographical Head Sculpture

Place a hand on your hairless scalp, clasp at the looseness of your own skin and then stretch it into ridges.

(The head has already been shaved.)

Let loose the head-skin in hand. Squeeze then release, again and again.

You're furrowing yourself for good.

Squeeze then release. Repeat for four hundred minutes.

Purchase a brand new wig. Hide the new head mountains you just stretched and, in private, caress them every hour.

A larger man than any you know, working his head as described, made the earth from doing this.

Every planet was first worked from men's heads and hands, then detached, plucked up, placed neatly inside the heavenly firmament.

Your mountained head may become one also, a planet among others, mooned and starred and even inhabited.
