Three-Pronged Approach

Strange little fork.

Misshappen oddity amid uniform pairs.

Nicked from some place so long ago.

Do you miss where you were but one?

Or are you content where you are One?

Perhaps I find in you a kindred spirit—

utilitarian but nonetheless uncanny.

Strange little fork.

Feed me a piece of fruit.


Sometimes I fall a little bit in love with things and people simply because they are just a tad odd. Today my object of affection is a fork.
