floppy celery


floppy celery

in the bottom

of the crisper,

the longer it

sits, the more

it lays limper.

good ideas

often wither

like wilting food;

use them up

before they droop.

wait, perhaps

that idea

could be


once more?

if you add

a little water,

will it be as

crisp as before?

maybe there

is still time

to re-saturate

your bright idea

before it’s

too late?
