though not yet nailed: these are nails waiting in great swirls and coils to be banged into our attic roof, holding sheetrock and goodness knows what else into place. I don't know if they always come in bulk like this: at Lowes or Home Depot they always seem to be to be packaged up already. But these have a live, if rather hard, charm of their own, like hunks of rather cold and slithery snakes. I'm truly not entering into a nail sequence, but I might be tempted to try a more close up view tomorrow of these objects, simultaneously everyday workman's tools, and lethal implements, almost with the sheen and hardness of bullets.
