Ode to Green Twist Ties

By: Audrey Beckman

At the grocery store

In the days of our youth

The green twist ties were the best part.

So easily entertained were we

With these simple pliable toys

Laughing and forming new shapes.

One minute it was a ring of gold

The next it was a spiraled coin of old

All the things that it could be

Even though

It was only

A twist tie.
