02:59 am - Entropy.
I love the city.

I was worried at first. Worried sick as I traveled in, because there's not really anything to do on a train but worry. Except maybe re-read a book you've read five times already, or people watch in the food car. I worried about my meager funds and what I would do and where I would stay and who I would talk to. Turns out I didn't need to.

But then, things have a way of working themselves out, yeah? The universe may move naturally towards chaos, but it does it in the most sure and effective way.

03:22 am - Tin.
When I was young I had very fine, handmade, mechanical toys.  Small army men able to march around cities with working lamps and fairs with turning ferris wheels.  I had fun with them, I suppose.  I had more fun wrecking them than anything though, and the little men with their thin, kicking legs and exaggerated features used to keep me up nights, worried that they'd attack any part of me not bundled under the covers.  

The constant sound of this age, of the clockwork, keeps me on edge.  To this day the sound of gears winding down is one of the things that calms me the most.
