My old dull knife; I love that blade.
Behold her blunted self portrayed:
She shines, yet cannot make her point
Unsheathed, she’ll only disappoint.
Her edge, that dares to draw no blood
When cold, shall carve no willing wood;
Well-warmed, she’ll lose the fight to butter . . .
Despite her glitter, she’s no cutter.
A useless tool. There is none worse.
I’ll sharpen her—and then, my verse.
write a poem about a dull thing that you own, and why and how you love it.
