Engineered

by Lindsay   Aug 10, 2020


Metal shavings swiftly spread;
burning flames of blue-white shed.
Labeled instructions hereby read;

'Senseless Machine Crafted From Lead.'

Mechanical gears rotated round;
grinding echoes of empty sound.
Fastened never to be found;

lifelessly weeping from its mound.

    Maybe I went too far but this made me think of how people shape themselves to fit in a society. How they “engineer” change who they are just to feel like they belong.

    I may be completely off, but to me this is a powerful piece!

    Felt like I was in a garage shed dressed in a greased overall, while reading this. Very descriptive...
