(The "imagination" that is.)

If we hung imagination on a wall with one of those, one of those, you know,
"things" that we used to use to hang artefacts on walls, (oh what are they

You know, those things that hold up the cardboard or similar material placed
around a picture to serve as contract, along with that outer structure made
up of parts fitted and joined together at the 90 degree corners, along with
a piece of glass or plexiglas that is inserted on top and fitted just so to
protect the artefact and ensure that it would hang just - perfectly.

Anyway ... one of those things that you could hammer into the wall to hang
the artefact ... But, how could we make sure that it stayed there. I mean,
right there where we hung it? What if it wandered off?
