patina

patina on the brass

produced in the age

measured by the wear

protects this chain

from the weather outside

and from corrosion of the world

a sign of time

antique verdigris vestige touch

of metal links

adding element of timeless beauty

withstanding wet rains

from rusting the rind

of our worn, yet well-made weld
