A clevis ((klévəs). Used on the farm to hitch a wagon to a tractor. An everyday object of my past. An honored relic. I just bought this one on eBay for $8. Was it worth it? Why did I buy it? To have it. To have it near me. After so many years of neglecting clevis. Famous for having two meanings (from to cleave: i.e. to cling and to part.). I love the twist. Not all clevises have the twist. Ours did. Another word that I like is titanic; how it meant “indestructible” until The Titanic sank. Now the word isn’t used for that purpose, or any purpose at all.
