The iron was on, but the plug had been pulled. Where was the charge coming from? The iron should be cold. Maybe it’s a reflection from the sun as it’s light streams through the closed window and hits the metal of the iron. Maybe it’s my imagination wanting the iron to be hot, and serve some purpose other than to flatten my clothes.

The iron building, it’s so big, i don;t even kno why, why is it so big? and hat was the point? to fool people? to deceive them? make them feel stupid for thinking that the building was normal? who knows? who cares? not me. maybe me. me. me.

Horse, magnetic, flying through fields red as summer in the desert. A mother at home, dutifully doing all she can do at the same time. One moment in time, a steel city that has taken a new route to creating homes. girder by girder, the walls rise, the train leaves.

Iron sharpens iron, or so the Psalms says. It makes sense though. If we surround ourselves by those stronger than us, then they will dull us to strengthen themselves. Likewise, if we surround ourselves by weak people, we will only dull as we try to help them.

He mined and mined and didn’t even know what he was looking for. His mother sent him to get gold, he knew that, but something about it just seemed so so, well insubstantial, what could you really do with gold except give it away? Or making fancy jewelry. No what he needed was Iron, something strong, something useful, what he needed was a life made of iron.

I remember watching my wife iron my shirt the day before I started teaching. She laughed and said, “It’s a good thing you’re with me so you have someone to iron for you.”
I smiled in resonse andd simple retorted, “If I wasn’t with you I wouldn’t need my shirt to be ironed.”

Iron is an essential element. People are deficient in this element. Supplements can fix this. Take in food that has iron.

Iron mask cloak the hatred and spite engulfing the lives of the workers. They are not free men, as was promised, but instead are slaves to the Abundance’s wim. They can do nothing but what they are asked to. They are The Workers.

It’s good for hitting people in the head
You can make cutlery to eat people with from it
It’s also needed in your blood

Condone your belief
Via metallic fusion
As flesh joins relief
From the illusion
That materials of:
Grandeur makes things better
But so do materials of perfunctory illusion.

a cousin to carbon
the last shroud
But you are ignored;
not like him
not like her
you are dense thing
A large pile of rumpled clothes on one side, neatly folded ones on the other. In the middle a woman weeps, wondering what she is doing. Are wrinkles so bad that I have to sacrifice myself to eliminate them?

Rusty Mother fucking soap.
I hate rusty shit. Get some clean water.
Maybe I should hire a wife who knows how to clean.

I hate ironing. Yeah, it makes my clothes look good, but why can’t every shirt or blouse be made of wrinkle-free fabric? Wouldn’t life be so much easier then?

He gazed down at the vulnerable, pretty little thing in her arms – the only thing in his power he could do. His eyes, so wide and expressive they’d transfixed many, were now in turn held captive by hers – a slightly smaller pair of bright young eyes that held no residue of age; reflected a hint of his own charm.
A thought danced on the edge of his mind – she was so like a young, impressionistic slab of iron. Would that slab of iron rust away, rust away at his heart with the years to come?
The thought flickered away into the depths of nowhere, and he continued tracing her dear face with his eyes.

She grasped the iron’s handle in her hands, her skin turning pale as the blood rushed to be a more welcoming home. She didn’t know what to do, she didn’t know what to think. It was a hurricane released at fleeting moments, a visitor who dropped by often but never stayed for dinner. It would go away in some short moments. So she went back to carefully ironing her favorite blue shirt.

Iron Man. That’s what people called him. I just called him Tony. Even when he had the suit. He was my best friend. So I called him by his name. Why call him Iron man, anyway? The suit is Titanium Alloy. Not iron. Whatever. I guess it does sound pretty cool. Yeah.

Hey Mr. Hammer, I want to not to bash me in the head but tickle me. So, here’s the plan: pry up my skull bone along ancient baby plate fracture lines with nail pull blades worn dull by time’s arrow, and then ever so gently rub hammer head just behind the frontal lobes where my 21st century meets ancient crocodile. Love, Jeff

iron is cool. I love pumping iron and getting big in the gym. I also have iron in my body from eating wheaties. if you dont have enough iron in your body you cant give blood. I have enough though so I gave blood a few times. The prick that they give you in the finger hurts more than the actual needle. Its been real. I hope I stumble here again sometime. Later jk but forreal its been fun.

we keep watching the same section
of our lives
as if any more listening
would help write knew maps
find gold in a bucket of iron
but were running out of metal
all that’s left is the stuff that reflects
that were just settling for each other

Once upon a time there was an iron man. He fell in love with another iron girl. They had little iron babies. But one day there was a huge cloud, and it started to rain. All of the iron people started to rust. So then, a huge copper man came and cleaned up the iron mess.J

His iron hands pressed into her smooth, young girl flesh.
“I know what you want.”
She turned her face from him as he kissed her hard on the mouth, hard like his iron hands.

I’m strong as iron. I will stand up for what I believe in. I will voice my opinion even when it is not accepted. I will be who I want to be, not what everyone else thinks I should be. I will do things for me, never for pleasing anyone else. I am me, and I am happy being exactly who I am.

iron is a piece of metal that is something and also it prevents you from having anemia if you have enough of it so yeah and i think iron is what weight lifters use when they lift weights, is that the kind of metal the weights are? i think so. thats all i know about iron. its
By Sara L on 04.24.2011
Ironische Kommentare habe ich noch nie gemocht. Besonders nicht solche, die absichtlich so formuliert sind, dass ich sie nicht verstehe. Dass ich nicht weiß, wo der Hase langläuft. Dass ich nicht weiß, ob ich flüchten soll, oder ob alles gar nicht so schlimm ist. So dass ich bei Flucht ausgelacht werde. Alles von vornherein einkalkuliert. Ich bin so oder so der Verlierer.

The iron lay hot on the ironing board, waiting for the cloth to be laid before it. In a moment with the steam and heat, the resistance of the fabric will be just a distant memory and now the clean flat surface will persist. Now I will drag it across, to flatten that which is an a front to my minds eye. The cloth is no longer in disarray, but now ordered by the heat of my iron.

I’ve heard that fairies are allergic to iron. Maybe their changelings are too – maybe that’s why I can’t go under the horseshoe on the barn door without breaking out in hives. Mum has always said I’m not really a changeling, but it feels as if that’s the only way to explain this.

By the time I was 2,000 miles away from home, the singed flesh had already crusted over. He traced the raised burns with his fingertips and laughed at my story about how I had managed to confuse my thigh for a wrinkle. “What were you doing ironing a duvet cover in your underwear anyway?” I just wanted some crisp cotton for our clumsy reunion. I didn’t mean to get hurt along the way.
