Dormant Instrument

A hickory handled
Well honed wood
Chisel
That will never
Be used for which
It was designed
A well oiled
Razor sharp edge
Ready at a moments
Time
To effortlessly carve
Into waiting wood
Grain
Tucked away in it’s
Case
Behind the cabinet
Door
Never to be what
The blue print
Called for
