nevertheless

to do a thing
                                         say wind a cord
on a spool
                                         with precision
requires
                                         an axle
to achieve
                                         a slope
so indistinct
                                         order
imposed
                                         by engines
with slick
                                         bearings
hands eyes
                                         are not made
for this
                                         nevertheless
we make our
                                         lumpy things
and marvel
                                         at our
indiscretion
