i think i know
why some mechanics
don’t scrub their fingernails:
they wear the grease
like a badge of honor

the same way i wear
the war peace paint
brushed across my bicep
by my two year old son

and the only reason
my arms are a little toned
is because i throw
28 and 38 pounds in the air
almost daily, just for fun
