What a prick

by Kavita

A PRICK that gives the thread its life; the jute its personality and the shoe its sole. A prick that turns the wool into a shawl, the plastic into a bag and the ear into a jewel stall. A prick that makes the balloon burst into glitter, makes the artist tattoo the dragon, makes the doctor rejuvenate the lifeless.

I wonder why they hate pricks. I just can’t do without them.
