each is but a little ship in the vast mechanical sea … movement in unison .. no other way … predetermined … tied into … a part of … a cog … nothing new to be learned here .. move on …

and a voice in the background screams NO!

… but the machine hears not … one cog out of so many does not matter .. remove, discard, replace … the machine moves on … and the voice is smothered by the relentless movement of the little ships in the vast mechanical sea …

notes:

this is for you Yampimon (big smile) … thank you for sharing your work that inspired this little mini-story
.
please click on the photo or go here Yampaper 49 to leave him a comment … and don’t forget to say hi for me (big smile)
.
ps. our collaboration has also been posted to my blogs Through My Friend’s Eyes and Through Owl’s Eyes …. do go have a look-see … Tumblr is a very nice and easy blog to work with … (big smile)
.
Yampimon suggested Mars from the Planets Suite by Holst but it sounded too human IMHO … at first I couldn’t think of a replacement but then I couldn’t help but hearing Pink Floyd’s Welcome to the Machine .. oh not the words .. not what they meant but the music it self .. always the feeling of movement in unison .. relentless … so I though I’d include a YouTube video of it however and sorry I couldn’t find one that I really liked (sigh) … but those of you who know PF know how it sounds (big smile) … enjoy

ps. found the video … listen while you read the story (smile) 14 APR 2013
