Stick Pins

Chrome plated steel;
smooth.
How they glide through cotton and wool.
Fine point,
sharp,
With a surprising bite!
Insignificant?
Nothing to bother with?
Always has, always will be there?
Aye it has.
Better to be pricked by this pin,
it knows its job,
that is what it does,
carrying out its mission
whenever called upon.
Why do we want to take its place,
Its mode of being, purpose?
Let the stick pin do its work.
Leave it to them to puncture and perforate.
We should know it for what it is.
And not imitate its cruel point.
