Steelypips, illustrious, industrious, and they hadn't a care: no spats
in their vats, no rules, no schools, no gloom, no evil influence of the
moon, no trouble from matter or antimatter -- for they had a machine,

respect. And they lived with it, and on it, and under it, and inside
it, for it was all they had -- first they saved up all their atoms,
then they put them all together, and if one didn't fit, why they
chipped at it a bit, and everything was just fine...

Notes for a ballet, "The Spell:" ... Suddenly Sigmund hears the
flutter of wings, and a group of wild swans flies across the moon ...
Sigmund is astounded to see that their leader is part swan and part
woman -- unfortunately, divided lengthwise. She enchants Sigmund, who
is careful not to make any poultry jokes...
