axeman: towards completion

contemplation
becomes a form of pleasure

glancing from the house
from his breakfast
to the diminished woodpile
he is able to visualise

less

less

none

nothing

there are only a few steps
now
that remain
between

work still to be finished

and

job done

as he looks out
to the solid rounds
that remain

he can contemplate
a completion
