Crimson hot iron
to make it the shape
like the customer wants
all summer afternoon
hit down it with a old hammer
dozens of times
wiping the hot drops of sweat
turn and pour water
repeat again
be made a necessary shape
treasuring the hammer
after putting it in a conspicuous
cool place
go rest the shade of
a tree.
