Safety Pin Friendship

by Nivedita N
(Hyderabad, Telangana, India)

Give a safety pin to a woman
and she is your friend for life.

Pinned on the edges of her saree,
she’d carry, these safety pins.

Brimming like a bride though all night she cried --
hanging on her chain, these safety pins.

A fix for a broken chappal; a thread for a tear;
Purchased aplenty, these safety pins holler: I care!
