the idea bank
tells me i’m the
best customer.

you visit daily,
they tell me.
you always bring a deposit
and your credit is good.
why don’t you
make a withdrawal?

i always smile and
shake my head: no time
for a withdrawal.

no time to do it
i’ll come back
another time, okay?

so ideas stack up
it’s easy to imagine
them all piled like
and about to collapse
if one is removed.

and i remember –
make a withdrawal
but there’s no time
and so the deposits get
more and more.
nothing gets done
and my mind remains

(clutter is the block,
it turns out. so maybe
make a withdrawal?)
