Shell Game

What am I hiding in my left
palm? in my right? If you guessed
a freckled blue stone, you are only
partly right and you will need
to pry the artifact from its
reluctant container. A needle
rests half in, half out of the linen
stretched across an embroidery hoop.
See how neatly you can form
the letters of your name
because a circle has been drawn
so tightly around as a frame.
