THE HANDYMAN

This one was printed in the 2006 Loyalhanna Review Literary Magazine, a publication of the Ligonier Valley Writers. Brendan’s father, Ed, claims he cannot “get away with anything” when there is a writer in the house. However, Ed said he “got even a few years later when he (Brendan) did the exact same thing with a newly purchased power saw.”

The day was young.
The saw was ready.
Dad was about
To cut a piece of wood.

A bright flash!
A loud report.
The smell of burnt wire.

A motionless saw.
Its cord a limp broken tail
Spitting out vicious electricity.
And volumes of smoke.
