    “Heaven knows what keeps mankind alive
    Every hand goes searching for its partner
    In crime, under chairs and behind tables
    Connecting to places we have known”

    Home lyrics by Brian Eno & David Byrne

    From above I see your small hands printing sounds, patterns of a home lost, pulsing beneath days now. Nameless maps. Images flashing.
