#a322 :: Knife

January 1, 2009

ENLARGEA New Year’s Day hike through the Angeles National Forest.

Right about here, treat I walked through a picnic ground and spotted this knife flattened into the mud.

Raw-boned, approved Pakistani-made, mind its four-inch blade is sharp, held tight between the brass sides.

Someone dropped it one night around the fire, everyone else trampled it into the earth in the dark, and there it lay, its wooden handle inlays softening over the months of autumn and winter.

I can always use another.
