Pinned Presence

Posted on

The token I give you
Is a galvanized wire.
Who said love is smooth?
I don’t trade with a fake red rose.
To symbolize my bond – a wire,
Be it on a Saturday or not,
Be it that you keep it there
Or nonchalantly you throw it out.

When the rose is faded
And when the stem withers
Like a love of yesterday now flimsy to the touch
Of gathering rains to wash away its sins,
To secure you in here
With safety pins.

2001.
