This bit of repair in two acts feels like it validates my secret love for chainlink fences as canvasses for any manner of human expression.

I really love the mending: the way it’s at 45 degrees to the fence grid, its even coat of rust, the imperfect metal used, the clean shape of the hole–as if woven with skill but not specialization, the little green piece at the bottom like punctuation.
Things worth repairing are beautiful. Repair is beautiful.
