Green means go

My eyes see a green light, but my foot stays off the gas. No shaking legs stop my movements, though an unsure mind cripples my body. Whatever the result, no good can come of it. Paperclips hold me shut, so no eyes gaze the endless rain that drips ink on notebooks. I gather dust on a corner’s bookshelf.

    Good morning~ I liked this flash fiction but, it’s this line that stands out most for me: Paperclips hold me shut, so no eyes gaze the endless rain that drips ink on notebooks. Love that. Have a nice day.

    Sometimes the best thoughts remain covered . . . as if by paperclips.

    Fascinating to ponder.
