POEM: Ideas, Old & New

Ideas are like keys, unlocking new
versions of you. It needn’t be a new thought.

It might take twenty-three exposures to
an idea before it slips and twists
to pop the lock — unleashing a new you.

Why not the first time you read a concept?

Who knows? Maybe, the last time all pins weren’t
aligned. Your mind wasn’t in a receptive
state, or you were missing a vanguard thought.

I only know that spring-loaded mind “pop”
has always come with a sharp exhale, and
the feeling that I’m forever transformed.
