The Ice resurfacing machine - a short poem

The Ice resurfacer

the ice resurfacer, wonderfully empty

a humming artist who always paints glossy

(and opens up for play)

a hedgehog without spines

who knows one Big thing while

the foxes the hockey players

know many small things




Notes and bric-a-brac; 

- The first ice resurfacer was developed by American inventor and engineer Frank Zamboni in 1949 in the city of Paramount, California.[1] As such, an ice resurfacer is often referred to as a "Zamboni" regardless of brand or manufacturer.

- Ice resurfacer translates into the swedish word "ismaskin" which also means Ice machine /Ice maker. 

- "Ice Machine" is also a song by Depeche Mode featured on the 7" single "Dreaming of Me", released on the 20 february 1981 through Mute Records.
