"I Love Rust..."

...and things with
coppery green patinas and creaky handles.
Things that are so loving worn
and filled to the brim with silent storied lives
touch my heart.
Hmmm...wait a minute...
I could very well be describing myself!

“A determined soul
will do more with a rusty monkey wrench
than a loafer
will accomplish with all the tools
in a machine shop.”
