Little Scissors (Day 158)

 

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

(snip)
make changes 
(snip)
replace 
the small, the weak
the old, the face 
of history,
(snip)

the plan 
     regarding pregnancy
the rules 
     of rape or incest

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

because
at any stage of life
(snip)
change is value  
(snip)
value is change 

and the unimaginable 
sin of caring: dangerous
