why do they compete

Lately I’m playing a lot of chess, 8 games, by email. I’m playing with friends. During all these times my mind is filled with chess diagrams of the games. I can’t think of poetic lines or poetry ideas. If there are thoughts that pass by they don’t last long.

Mrs. Abstract says the brain center for poetry and chess must be the same. Is it? Chess and poetry involve creativity.If one is active is the other suppressed or dormant?
