There is no misundertood innuendo "problem" in the poem. My quick comment (late for work) was to say that the intended magic of the poem is more than a match for any attempt to tip its table into the phallic.
The only pause I had was wondering how the pencil didn't blacken the ivory details when using it to clean in the tight spaces of the carving. The type of intellectual questioning that is not needed here but there it was.
