long from the forge,
stripped bare,
a patina takes to
dedication of self

details rise
from polished surface

light and shadow
with no regard
for agenda

faint lines sharpen
and heaviness comes
with massing of revelation

still, the base,
crafted by
a hand unseen
will hold up
under the weight

once erected
it stands exposed
