He was waiting
for the computer to boot up,
but he was also waiting
for wide-open ideas,
and for the wildness
of letting in
whatever ideas come.
The computer will come alive
when it wants to,
but ideas bring their insights
second by second,
and he needs to know
how to hold the doors open
and help them come in.
Ideas don’t stay
unless we welcome them,
so his arms are always open,
even as the computer
is calling his name
with its promising wisdom.
