His projects-

of finding

something old and loving it new

Of placing ridiculous hope

in rot-riddled wood

Of rolling his eyes but

turning over a bit of sense

to my “This one’s too far gone”-

His projects

are made of challenge

and patience

rebuilt into old bones

Full of unconventional solutions

and subtle satisfaction

he won’t ever show
