Quietly padding through the silent factories another speck of dust is magnetically attracted to its peers upon the shoulders of stagnant monsters, so unindustrious. The depths of resounding recall white noise fizzing in my ears, but my attention is attenuated towards the snap of a far away mouse halved under the released tension of a patient trap. Now the russet seeps from its spilt gut, like profits reddening the balance sheet, tipping both mouse and enterprise out of the black, and into the debt of the maker.
