Heat and iron

Chalk characters make lists and blueprints to be moulded out of sand fresh from the furnace.

Yellow, orange flames flicker from the red glow through a slender gap in the door.

The smell of heat is like rust. The taste of heat is like iron freshly filed into the room. The air shakes in a steel sheen.

A blowpipe rests in water.
