Daily Prompt: Clutch

via Daily Prompt: Clutch 

This word has so many meanings, it is difficult to choose one to respond to.  Some vehicles, especially big trucks have clutches which are used by the driver to engage a selected gear.  It is also an active verb, often used to describe the prey held in an eagles’ claws.  It also conveys the idea of a person, as in the story by Somerset Maugham, and movie of the same title, “Of Human Bondage” when the gold-digging waitress (figuratively) got the spellbound protagonist, a crippled young doctor, “in her clutches.”
