"There are many marvelous tales untold, unwritten, never to be recorded or remembered, lost beyond all divining and all imagining, that sleep in the double silence of far-recessive time and space."

—A Voyage to Sfanomöe By C.A. Smith

Lo! 'Tis a gala night
Within the lonsome latter years!
An angel throng, be winged, benight
in veils, and drowned in tears,
Sit in a theatre, to see
a play of hope and fears,
while the orchestra breaths fitfully
The music of the spheres.

—Edgar Allen Poe

OUBLI

To drink lillies
of cold water
on the edge
of pure oblivion

—Paul Valéry
