A tool with a helical bit for boring holes in wood.

<SPECIAL USAGE> a similar larger tool for boring holes in the ground.

I received the vision as I danced. I was the turning auger, the wheel spun around its center, the end of the circle moving to meet its beginning, to complete itself, without beginning and without end.

I actually thought this word was “augur” at first, being as the character is talking about having a prophetic vision.

Based on Google image search, an auger looks a lot like a drill bit, which … maybe makes sense with the “wheel spun around its center” bit, but I’m not sure.

The “special usage” of “a similar, larger tool” cracks me up.
