Paul’s innovative thought
felt very heavy in his arms
after he lifted it from the car seat.
He birthed his innovative thought
only three days ago
and this rapid development was unexpected.
Paul carried it in the car seat
because that is what you do
with newly birthed things.
He protected eggs he purchased
at the grocery store in this manner.
And baby spinach.
Paul knew the innovative thought
was growing its own pace
and that was fine.
He was confident it would meet other thoughts
thus make friends, enemies
or form no connection at all.
