#217 Le Grand Si├Ęcle


Pick a point in time
& stick a pin in it.

Attach a piece of string,
50 or 100 years long.

An area defined, ob-
long in a circle's arc.

Three sides with forest
lining them. A low

block wall across the
other. In front of which

a faceless avatar being
stared at by a windowless

mansion. Grass underfoot.
A plaster ceiling overhead.

Deadening the acoustics. A
silent century. How grand.
