Little Scissors (Day 158)


Little scissors
round-tipped, red 
handles made 
for tiny hands 
to hold

make changes 
the small, the weak
the old, the face 
of history,

the plan 
     regarding pregnancy
the rules 
     of rape or incest

(snip, snip) 
tiny hands 
make cuts
of income 
of need
of age

at any stage of life
change is value  
value is change 

and the unimaginable 
sin of caring: dangerous
