pomegranate commented on the word the taming of the screw
Thus in plain terms: i not so very handy
Hath naught dexterity to pound a nail-
And so the screw. Its narrow groove doth mock me.
For am I he am born to tame it, Kate?
And drive it in the wood that it may fasten-
Conformable as other home hardware.
