Atomic Bird

When we measure a system
We change the system
For a quantum system this is grossly so
The superposition……
All possible states existing simultaneously
Give way to the one state
Collapsing the quantum dance.

Here my atomic bird*
Made of record players
And broken umbrella bones
Dances while
Trying to describe itself
“To overcome the measurement problem”,
He says…..
The system is measuring itself
Hoping the observer leaves the room
