    The Start
    By Reid Baer

    The handle feels easy in his
    father’s palm and the steel head has
    a certain raw potency of
    its own ready for the anvil
    and the flattening of the iron
    in his son John … so with a jerk
    and sudden movement down and a
    rebound upward the great hammer
    bounces a beat or two then comes
    to rest at center mass in the
    creation, manipulation,
    of another generation’s
    soul – this is the boy’s sudden start -
    startling from the beginning to
    the end never apart from the
    early formation forever
    reverberating through parts of
    this man’s mind and surely his heart.
