But fix it I could never do. Unique perfection,
Should never be altered. How could I take such joy away?
A device to be treasured, not structured like a picket fence.
You’ve pushed potatoes and sometimes pudding through it,
you’ve whistled like a dark-eyed Junco making passersby search the sky with it.
Without the space divided is a world within all others, not a place for you.
