An Ode to the Clothespin


They are

like birds on a wire,

wooden claws

clamping sheets

and nightgowns

that flap freely

above country lawns

clothesline in the breeze

and dark alleys.


Perched in trees,

wedding clothespin

on silver branches,

claire reyes love doves


escort cards for shabby chic wedding

and fences.

wedding clothespins

Holding signatures,

escort cards clothespins

hearts and wishes.

unique wedding guest book


decoupage clothespin

and plain.
