Lift Your Right Arm

Peter Cherches

  Lift your right arm, she said.
  I lifted my right arm.
  Lift your left arm, she said.
  I lifted my left arm. Both of my arms were up.
  Put down your right arm, she said.
  I put it down.
  Put down your left arm, she said.
  I did.
  Lift your right arm, she said.
  I obeyed.
  Put down your right arm.
  I did.
  Lift your left arm.
  I lifted it.
  Put down your left arm.
  I did.
  Silence. I stood there, both arms down, waiting for her next 
command. After a while I got impatient and said, what next.
  Now it's your turn to give the orders, she said.
  All right, I said. Tell me to lift my right arm.
