The Humble Fan

Our first appliance was the humble fan
that moved unseen currents of air toward
the consumer more efficiently than Pharo's
slave-boy powered fronds.

Driven by direct current when
electricity was new, we marveled
more though at seeing through
the solid spinning blades, however darkly,
to the world beyond.
