Engine

by Adam Sass

Like a lover, it chose him,
Like a vice, crushed him,
Like an axle, spun him,
Like a fire, burned him,
Like a sun, blinded him,
Like a court, judged him,
Like a priest, blessed him,
Like a friend, knew him,
Like a mother, soothed him,
And when it had finished with him,
He still did not know what it was.
