withdrawals and deposits

the corporate spokesman gives us
green and red pebbles that represent
“withdrawals” and “deposits”
to remind us that the proletarians
can sometimes have emotions;
i’m skeptical, so i throw the pebbles
into the fish tank, where they belong.

what about my withdrawals?!
i’m feenin for your letters;
scrambled, disjointed, dyslexic
or fried.

and deposits of money into my
bank account pales in comparison
to the words that you inject
into my veins; high on your word play.

i’ve decided i’m going to deposit
into you
and then
withdrawal just in time.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
