a constant frustration
the inanimate object
with a mind of its own


Author's Note: This stone refuses to bleed

The title is just a hoot of a newly created poetic form describing its contents perfectly. My husband might say all the tools he misplaces mindfully disappear from his visual reach. Enjoyed this very much.

I've come across a few of those in my time. Fun and well stated, Laura.

You have my admiration, Laura. To be able to make a prescient statement with so few words. What a gift! It was a fun read. It seems each day - especially the older I get - I have these objects with a mind of their own. The biggest example is that LSU tumbler that keeps iced water cold but disappears until all the ice has melted and the water has grown lukewarm. I certainly relate - entirely too much. Thanks a bunch for your compact little smiler.

quandryu is one of my favorite words. I like your perception of quandryu. I often pass by sorter works I can not write them I am too wordy. Maybe I am not confident enough but you are very impressively consise. I bow to you. -bf
