engineer's dream

engineer's dream,
artist's nightmare.
upper appendages require
time upon time of study
preceding the layering of brushstrokes--

true whether varnish or paint.
more so than torso
yet not much so,
but still a dream
for the mechanically inclined:

three phalanges,
the carpals,
each blood vessel,
muscles, and tendons alike,
as well the three primary nerves,

each astonishingly aligned;
marvels indeed
in industrial design.
