This is where the things are made,
in the midst of mess.
Old tools, here and there a new one
still has it’s shine.
Spare parts. Leftover from past projects.
Broken things, not quite broken enough
A space to work. Good light.
This is where things are made.
About this poem.
A poem about places things are made, studios, workshops, and about life. Poems are never about one thing.
