Riddled

Riddle

the first:

corkscrewed, schnozzled, with long-digit dukes

he midwives ink; feeds it imagination,

then slaughters it; cuts it down to size

(not a butcher)

the second:

taut, patient, oh-so-balanced,

she kneads the lumps of dough, gets them to rise

to her expectations

(not a baker)

the third:

skeletal, soft-spoken journeyman,

he saws and hammers; hums

-no walking on water-

(not a candle-stick maker)

(H/T; also Writing 101, day six)
