A Sudden World of Paper Clips

One clip horizontal

A mother whale
and her calf

Vertical, fat end up:

The embrace
of silver flamingoes

Pull down the inside curl


Make it horizontal

Mother and calf
part ways

Put it away. Take out two new ones.

Make two trains collide.

Separate the trains a bit. A pair
of anxious eyes.

Make them vertical. Watch
a pair of strangers chat.

Let them kiss
with their hands
at their sides.

Now let them make love.

Let them make love
another way.

Let them rest.

Take one away. See
a lonely paper clip.

Now put that clip to work.

See a lonely paper clip
at work.
