Sometimes there comes a point when you hold it in your hand
an egg of an idea fit to fit in the can,
its all a bit rough though, still a bit hairy
so to make it work, you tie it with string and present it carefully…
…it would have been interesting of course,
had the lecture been more terse
reading my phone quietly while the powerpoint rang loudly
you missed the essential piece of technical slang
never mind the acronyms, the instant NEW.
you pulled too hard on the string
so they’ll be gone by tomorrow, gone by tomorrow…
when the strangled egg turns blue.
