Perhaps it was the Clams

This is from the conference today. It is the Perhaps it was the clams prompt.

​Perhaps it was the clams
she mused.

​Perhaps, or maybe the butterflies
he said sarcastically.
​Clams do nothing but sit there.

No, they create wonder
​who knows what they can do
​maybe sure a terrible disease
maybe steal Mom's purse.

He responded with
You don't know anything
about this, clams
sit on the ocean floor
​doing nothing
no hands to take with
no feet to run with.

Indignantly she said
​You don't know that!
