Know your onions
Know your place in
other people’s lives.
Be sure you are who they are
to you to them
Don’t overrate your position
Don’t underrate your influence
Ensure the person you adore adores you
Ensure the person you respect respects you in return
Be sure the love of your life has you
as the love of his or her life too
Hence you would keep filling a basket with water
to be subtle on your situation
ICE instead of water.
Be the substance you hope for in others.
