Aluminum Girl


Strength and endurance of steel,

The beauty and luster of gold,

The tarnished peace of silver,

These qualities I do not hold.


Thin sheets, I tear without effort.

I mold and bend at one’s will

I shape to fit any mood

Any random need to fill.


If torn in error, no worry.

Just pinch and fold in place,

But before too long, I’ll fail,

If this fix is a common case.


Strip me down, sharp shreds,

Some come away shiny, some dull.

Completely replaceable am I.

An abundant metal to cull.


You are the mighty, stainless steel,

You pierce me; I’m paper thin.

And when I am gone there is more,

A new, pristine sheet to begin.


Beautiful, necessary, well-used,

A glowing matte finish, your sheen,

No matter the gore you’ve endured,

You’ll make sure you come away clean.


Use me for my convenience.

Wrap me firmly around.

I’ll be easy to remove, when

What you’re seeking is found.
