laslu: Long Hiatuses?

Talking with dryad271 ... thought I should post something to this since it has been years. Here's something I read a couple of months ago here

-Wind Up Toys-
When you twist the little crank round and round
it leaves a tiny impression between fingers
There's a minimum tension to achieve
motion that when you let it go
the motion's frequently clumsy with a rocking
forth and back so bobbly urgent with falls
and stumbles then well-meaning folks at the table's
edge righting the dancing plastic before another stumble--
and always a pressing clicking whirr until the tension's
exhausted.
(cute, joyous and momentary)
Is the rocky ride worth winding again?
