Carpenters

It’s an exhilarating sight

to watch a man cut wood,

use his hands to

craft an ardent desk

that would have many a troubled men

play nervous tunes with their

knuckles, tapping on the wood

to ensnare lady luck

into believing their inane lying

about the worth of their own virtues.

Men were built to cut wood

not fell trees, but cut wood

they were built to carve

totems, and tanned goddesses

with their splinter infested hands

and saw dust eyes.

Women, on the other hand

never needed an addendum.
