I had an implement -
A thought that pushed A Head -
And after just an increment -
My day was full of dread!

It's startling to refer to a thought as an implement. There's something truly sinister about the word "implement" here. That one thing alone makes this poem brilliant & thought-provoking. It speaks to the old argument that guns don't kill . . . people do . . . or thoughts, in the case of your poem. Without you ever saying so, I get the picture this narrator is going thru his/her day about to kill someone (or oneself). It's magical the way you infer so much with so little (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thoughts that veer off the proper track can lead us into dangerous and depressing areas if we're not careful.

Touché, Relic. It sometimes takes a conscience process to co troll them. Thanks for coming by. :)
A thought that keeps multiplying unabated can really fill a day with much dread. This where your words took me and it was very interesting to think over them!

Well thank you, Kay!
Is this a makeup disaster, lockdown DIY, murdered the other half.
Actually, I think everybody is murdering the other half, seems the rage just now.
Tomorrow is another day they say, just like yesterday.

Thanks Paul. I think it could be all of the above.
The key to this brief piece is line 2. Why would the last two words be capitalized? I get the feeling some kind of anxiety disorder is in play here, but I may be wrong.

i think we are all full of dread these days.
wishing we had an implement that could stop this disease ...but we
seem to be able to do it only an increment at a time...if that.
