Innocent Amusement: a #Quadrille – #Haibun

Twist and turn me one way, then another.

When he was done, he’d mold me two-handed,

and pour me back into my egg.

  2. Bang on, brother. I haven’t thought about “silly putty” for decades. It’s still popular today; many of my grandchildren use tortillas to become silly putty. Hey, remember the “Slinky”?
