tighten our rust belts

what does rust say about humanity?

bubbling up under paint and clear coat; enabled by salt.
drudgingly it is compromising once immortal structures. the metal aches.
the malignance of progress.
the inevitability of corruption.

we are dictated by progress. our prosthetic topography raises with our ambitions.
we project our own destiny on that of our infrastructure.

chemical changes deface our manufactured destinies.
what once was sterile and shiny or vibrantly colored now turns a reddish-brown resembling the clay that it was intended to defy.

what does rust foreshadow for humanity?
