bobby pins

Bobby pins and hair ties are everywhere.

6 inches from where they are supposed to be, yet never there.

Children of the bobby pins make the floor their playground.

Hair ties frolic with dust bunnies;

Both are the vile offspring of thoughts’ thoughtlessness.

Bobby pins and hair ties, keepers of tidiness, creators of tiny messes.

Cast aside for the new, the straight, the firm.

Homewreckers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
