In my youth I disassembled my father’s alarm clock. Spent the day spinning the many different “tops” (also known as gears) I found inside. He was not happy. I was much more unhappy. I learned that things work better If I leave them alone. I have since worked on skyscrapers and bridges and still maintain full control over my digits. Every day I explore the complexity of such extraordinary digital technology. 3/13/2022 Let’s Explore Digital Technology Poetry Contest Sponsor – Simon Rogerson

My nephew does this in Manhattan, responsible for the upkeep of several tall buildings -- great responsibility, with fascinating complexity. I think some of the reasons we like puzzles, dissecting things is, we are always wondering of our own true nature. "Spent the day spinning the many different “tops” (also known as gears)" Certain a few of my gears are lost in the carpeting. You get a Fav! for this one. Joe.
