Knife~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Knife

 

honed and hungry
a beautiful weapon
remarkable tool
courage edged
to the curve
of the blade
forged in fire
philosophers use
to incubate thought
to enlighten
the shadows of
criminal ignorance
balance and heft
provided to hand
with a measure
of mind keen and
crowned with
mature bloom of
antler-bone born
from the bloodline
sacred of Artemis
bred to the myth
fluid poetry fleet
as the flesh and
the radiant horns
of the prized
golden hind

 

“A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it.”

– Rabindranath Tagore
