I’ve designed this all-purpose cut-out
for solving everything: nit-comb,
can-opener, straight-edge, spanner,
template for a Norman arch or
Playschool window, portable semi-
Cubist Cross for waving ineffectually
at psychic vampires, universal
spanner for burring every nut,
guide for making right-angles.

Yes, I’ve got a gut feeling this is it
(it even slices bread), so I’m off,
love, to the Patent Office, with my
bilaterally symmetrical, trilobite-
inspired, perfect blueprint in linocut.
