The bristles

of the  brush

press the paint

onto the steel

plate. Every crack

gets its share.

I envy

those who weld

cut or grind.

You can hear

their work getting done.

You who paint

listen for

the brush’s sound

in its slide

across the metal

like a cat’s tongue

over its own fur.

Silent work

is still work

you can say.
