The Iron Weight

Poem By Lazarus Knix

The Iron weight gathers dust-
It has sunk down into my carpet
Under a neglected force.

The metal bar it clang to
Is rusting near some buzz saw
In my dark garage.

I had brought them just
To fool myself into hope-
To command visions with veins.

My paper is dry and parched,
My arms are thin and pale,
A poem is born from the empty gale.

This dumbbell sends chimes
Through my fingertips.
