The Stand

stand, pink, metallic, support, short storyFrom the box, the pink metallic stand emerges, pulled out gently but firmly.
Placed on the table next to another, different stand, it is given a phone to hold.
The stand is roughly treated, being moved this way and that, until,
at last, the jerking stops, the new owner smiles and the stand is
left to do what it was made to do for hours on end.

Hold a tablet and let the owner play.
