Safety Pin

 

I see plenty of saviors

who are always the clasps

to form the loops

to fasten

sharp-pin-poison words

whenever applied to any heart

to protect—

just as Walter Hunt* did

with a safety pin

for the first time…

 

 

 

*American mechanic Walter Hunt is regarded as the inventor of the safety pins.

Self-Talk

 

Can you see anything, it says-

no, nothing, only darkness-

open your eyes-

it’s open-

What do you see?

A thick mist, like white darkness-

what’s there in front of you?

A blank space of nothingness-

look closer, what’s it?

Seems like a thin mist-

now?

A shadowy sun-

time is vision, isn’t it?

May be, may be not, but who are you?

I am you-
