1

Monotonous Din Whirs and Clacks fill the ether Machines lurch onward

2  

Hot fog on my face Grind, twist, squeal with motion God's invention breathes

3  

Brass and copper gleam Man reaches for the future And breaks History

4  

Cloudships in the breeze leather gloves hold the brass wheel my invention soars

5  

Brass and goggles shine tophats and parasols drift above corset reefs

6  

Reimagine all save for the gentility farewell static past

7  

The power of steam all elegance and metal bent to better wills

8  

My dirigible is going down in flames. Curse that automaton!

9  

Gas lamps and starlight Contrast city lights below. Steam warms the deck.

10


You left me in tears - The gears of my clockwork heart Even broken, turn.

11 In between the stars Our ship creates it's own clouds Technology's mark.

12  

Anacronistic Composing bygone futures Timeless aether calls

13  

Imagined voyage Do airships have parachutes? Up, up, and away

14

Clock-Work-Cuckoo-Clown Steam-Cyber-Space-Ship-Circus Err-And-Iron-Punk

15

The dark howls at night Unnatural things lurking here Steam powered horrors

16 Wind chills to the bone Add more coal to the engine Steam wafts, warms the air

17 Clockwork golem lurches Thump, grind, thump, grind, here it comes I love what I do

  1. My favorite one is 10, simply because it remided me of a fantastic book, La mécanique du cœur (English version: The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart) which is a read no one could forget :)

    • Of course, I have never heard of it, Ally, but I will have a look for it.
