You are nails.
You are made from the bricks
of the longest standing buildings in the world.
You are the stuff of cathedrals.
You are a rhino in a bullet proof vest.
You are Rocky’s frozen meat.
You are my 30th birthday walking boots.
You could bite through an iceberg.
You could bend Saturn’s rings.
You could punch through a tree trunk
but you never would.
