Do They Move You?
Come follow me.
What convinced you?
My automated voices? My inanimate bleep? My roars of traffic or angering of flocks of birds?
The sounds of the city manouvering us about, from here, to there, like cattle led by the nose.
‘Do I move you, are you willin’…?
Do I move you, are you loose now?
The answer better be yes, yes.
It pleases me.’
As ever, Nina Simone, is scathingly succinct.
