Paperclip

Pull the tape
Place it back
Paperclip
Paper cup

Setting sun
Twine
Cumulus
Sky

Melancholia

Today
Not today
You say

Many phases
Swinging
Slides

Paperclips
& sticky notes

Message paper
Remember
For later

Imagining us
Side by side
Then

Funnel
Funnels
Funneling

Filtered light
Put the tape
Back
Roll it slowly

Rewind
