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.
