Still life with nails

still life with nails smWhen the work is done
The tools
Rest.

They do not worry
About the quality of the job,
Or whether there is enough paint
To finish it.

They are not concerned
About tomorrow’s to-do list.

Presumably
They do not ache the next day
From having used muscles
Heretofore unknown.

No.

They repose
With the relaxation of babes,
The languor of ladies
Who lunch.
