Pins

by Olivia Todd

I
The mini liberators of women,
hoisting those hems to the Heavens,
giving their legs room to breathe.

II
The silver capped scholars,
keeping those iridescent specimens
in place for little curious eyes.

III
The diligent sewers’ stabilisers,
holding together linen squares
so they can stitch their designs to life.

IV
The silent supporters,
presenting the poems of the next Shakespeare;
a collage of creativity.

V
The memory bearers,
pinning Polaroid pictures
to hippocampus cork boards.

VI
Pins pin
down
the important stuff.
