Nail Cemetery

February 3, 2012


With each strike of the hammer

The nail plunges deeper into the wood

Each hit concealing more and more

Leaving less and less to see

Until eventually the nail is gone

Pushed entirely beneath the surface

Never to be seen again

No mark or blemish

Where once stood iron

The hallmark of a skilled craftsman
