Plasticine Modelling

“Hold it in your hands

for a few minutes”,

he told her

with the wisdom of age.

He knew that would

make it easier to manipulate,

make it softer,

more plastic,



And that would make it easier 

to make the models

true to life

real likenesses

of the one

who had abused her

for there should be no mistake.

Lots of models.

Ready for pins

to be inserted

in accordance

with instruction.


to ensure 

there would be no recovery.

The mothers smiled

as they watched 

their children


so happily.
