NaPoWriMo 18

This hatchet has seen honest labor, I think,
but not this century.

I wonder about the last person to use it,
as the tool that it was.

When he put it down, in the corner of the shed,
did he know it was the last time?

That its work was over,
with that last quiet clink
of metal coming to rest
on stone.

  1. Another good one. You are developing something of a point of view. That’s a good thing.
