Brushed Steel

Soft hands in hard gloves
Working brushed steel,
Sparks from a welders wheel
Ricocheting
In an arc like fairy sparklers,
Embers smashing into visor green
Becoming nothing;
Soot and residue collecting,
Cutting white hot into steel;
Shaping scales on the pine cone;
Muscles tight under a heavy jacket
Flexing.
