Staple Diets

on the line,
those tiny bent pins
await their turn for
binding papers,
little realising,
they are reponsible
for the tiny holes,
which pierces
the cellulose soul.

Stapler with metallic heart
clawing the pins!!

Truly you have a way with words. I am now way too intimidated to share my "Ode to the Tape Dispenser".
