A full-service organization
Bob Hicok
?
?
I robbed a bank. Didn't mean to.?
?I'd deposited a check when the woman asked,?
?Is there anything else? She had a great smile.?
?It reminded me of a waxing moon.?
?I didn't want her to be a moon in vain,?
?so I said, I'll take all the money in your drawer.?
?She said, Of course. Then she said a funny thing.?
?Her head was down, she was looking at a stack of bills?
?in her hand, when she said, How would you like that??
?Meaning tens or twenties. Hundreds or quarters.?
?And as soon as she said this, she stopped,?
?dropped her hands, smiled, looked at me,?
?shook her head and said, Duh. And something?
?opened between us. A sense of life?
?as renewable and surprising,?
?full of little errors that make us notice?
?we need and can give help. There's only one way?
?to want everything, she knew that?
?and was admitting her mistake. So I pointed1 out to her?
?that I didn't have a gun. She pointed out to me?
?that money is a knife we plunge2 into each other?
?over and over for no good reason.?
?If I'd have had a cord of wood?
?or even a few logs, I'd have built a fire?
?right there and talked to her?
?well into the night, but there was no tree?
?in sight. At the end, having handed me the money,?
?once more she asked, Is there anything else??
?Yes, I said. I'd like to deposit this.?
?Checking or savings3, she asked.?
?Given how far we'd come together, I admitted?
?I've never known how to answer that question,?
?if it's better to live for the moment?
?or look forward to a better time.?
?That's why I'm here, she said,?
?taking out a pencil and paper and dividing?
?the paper into two columns, one labeled?
The Sky Is Falling, the other, So Am I.
