Through Fire & Molten Steel

Pound after pound,
Tar spills
from mouths
that learned tar and not words.
Tar turns
to fire or molten steel.

Pound after pound
sags on its target,
muck and muddy.
It hardens with layers
and time,
pound after pound,
until Revelations
crack the steel
Unearth and crumble
with hammer and chisel,

a bird of red licks

ready to fly through

molten steel.
