“iron heart”

***

rusted iron heart

of a rusted iron man

turned to dust

in the steely chest

of his faceless form

rusted away

a slow decay

through salty years

of raindrop tears

without the love

of his iron maiden

  3. Sweet and sad and many ways to view this. Even the photograph of the sculpture is poignant.

    Lovely, Tracy.
