I got the idea for this poem from the MIT Research paper titled: Deformation, structural changes and damage evolution in nanotwinned copper under repeated frictional contact sliding (see link below)
Deformation was studied, with a scanning electron microscope to monitor deformation-induced structural
changes as a function of the number of passes of repeated frictional sliding.
i saw a certain beauty in this, and wrote a poem about it.

repeated friction 1
effective twin density sliding cycles;
repetitive friction laden, piled up
diamond indenter materials evolve.
uniaxial ion beam senses,
deeply dislocated grain
cyclic loading deformation.
induced structural changes.
scratch surface softens.
stressed stacked fault energy ―
damage and deformation grows.
excessive dislocation facilitated.
no matter how hard you get
friction factors in,
