In Poems

Debbie Hammond

My high strength alloys are the engineers darling,
For blades tipped with tungsten have teeth that are snarling.
In argon and helium, I can help you to weld.
Or be a life proof wedding ring to promise you’ll be held.
But my light bulb filaments have long been replaced,
As more heat than light is seen as a waste
