Why You Should Avoid Courting a Sewing Needle

Try not to be upsetimages (24)

when your heart balloon pops.


It doesn’t matter how beautiful

you think the eye of a needle

or how well he threads his words

across your thighs

or stitches his sentences

with Madame Defarge’s deadly grace.


Don’t expect fragile care

falling in love with a prick.
