I am fascinated by Folks
whose orientation is toward "fixing things".
OK, something breaks.
These days,
Folks just throw it away.
It wasn't so long ago
that those who came before
would just scratch their heads
and figure out a way to fix it.
Their Creativity
was a source of their Genius.
These days,
my Kind can't fix much of anything.
Our inability to fix stuff
and our dependence on someone else
will surely be the stuff of legend.
These little scissors
don't work as well as they did,
but they do work.
They crafted a smile
on my face too.
