paper work

Mr Crud the artist
presents a token
of his creative skills
enticingly boxed
nested in shreds
to whit
a crumpled paper ball
a snip at £180

Mr Brouwer the mathematician
presents a paper
showing that
on a sheet of paper
laid flat on another sheet
then crumpled into a ball
and put back
there will be at least one point
that still lies above
the point it laid over
on the lower sheet

there is waste paper
and there is
conceptual art.
