Sharp Objects

The Bag Lady

Never clippers, blunt and crooked

Emery board, too flexible.

Metal file? Yes please.

Taking my time honing to perfection

Sliding the plane for sleek smoothness

Slowly, always with the grain

Honing to a lethal length

Shaping to an assassin’s taper

Death by a simple flick of my finger.
