Michael Lee Anvils TGS 2013
There are two bones in each of our forearms,they work as a tuning fork. Can you hear them ringingé Can you hear the sound you carryin the nighté This morning I awoke to an old echo crawlingfrom me as though I was full of hibernating things.I gathered as many anvils as I could find, I arranged them before me like drums,took a hammer up in each fist and began to play. After each clang my arms shivered like taughtropes, and that sound grew louder: the tolling ofchurch bells,
a wedding toast among blacksmiths, I raisedthem to my ears I swore I could John Henry swinginginside them. I could hear that lost art, the culture of building, of letting blooddrip into the mouth of craft. In every swing Isearch so desperately to hear an America that believedin the sanctity of labor. In every swing I am reminded,this America has never existed. Whether you have cotton or apples or coalor railroad tracks in your blood, your sweat is a languagethis country is trying to forget. It is a
languagewe are told to be ashamed of, to practice beneath lamplight and dusk. We are told to bury our historybeneath neckties and suits. The only history I trust is the one writtenby calloused hands, written by the laborers we named a street after and called it even. Dear America,do not call yourself a Christian nation and forgetChrist was a carpenter. Do not oppress the peopleclosest to the man you pretend to worship:
the humble, the poor and the working. America is the father who tells his sonto pull himself up by his bootstraps but gives him no shoes. Americais the father who beats his children and calls them ungrateful the day they fightback. America is the body of a piano.The keys a spine, the keys a chain gang, black and white.The overseer is a pianist of backs composing across the skin, he may play us,but he does not own this sound, does not own the ringingof sweat or vibration of arms. Without our
hammers,without our strings, he is only a ventriloquist of ghostspounding his fingers across the illusion of power. Each morning I play the anvil until the hammerbreaks or I do. This is the sound of spark and penance,a sound lost on the deaf ears of a country builton the backs of a stolen people. A country built hollowand burning like a pipe organ of cannons. Today as I broke into a sweat thick as bloodI played the anvil like a swarm of .22 caliber
waspslost in the lead belly of a church bell. I played the anvil like a bat calling to thedark, the answer is in the sound that returns.This is a litany, the anvil a preacher, our ringing bones a choir singing back.If I have ever found God, it is at the end of every swing Listen to your arms. We may live in a sleepingcountry, but we still carry the sound in the nightand heaven is a forge, heaven is an army of welderstelling me to wake up. Wake up and sweat.
