Lacquered paint
Layer upon layer
Brick dust and grey cement powder
Small bumps, for one hundred cramps
Human form shaping stone
Breaking and mixing
Carbon and water
Alloying and refining
And in so doing
Humanity builds houses
Better bodies
Painting made alone for beauty
As talismans alongside other art
Evident and heavy upon the world.
