Hit the nail
It was there.
I saw it.
I held it between my fingers.
Just a little afraid of hitting my thumb.
Just a matter of hitting it clean.
Drilling it into the surface.
Make it stick.
Enough to hang something substantial on.
Call it a metaphor if you like.
That's how I went through 2007.
And most every year before that.
Hammering away at that nail. As hard as I could.
Right on target.
Always the wrong tool.
Not always properly equipped.
Picking the wrong tool for the right job.
If I had a hammer.
Maybe the problem isn't a nail?
