what I’m good at

by on May 3, 2024 :: 0 comments

no money
no talent
no guardian angel
but an eighty-year-old table saw
and a pile of used lumber

no guru
no savior
no life ever after
but a rip cut and a cross cut
and a scrap of cheap cold cuts in the belly
and a thing for using up time
because that’s what I’m good at

no friends
no family
no safe harbor awaiting
but sawdust flying everywhere
and progress going nowhere

editors note:

You, too, can excel at going nowhere. – mh clay
