Excerpt

"…magnificent things are howling beneath my feet…. Frescoes, harmonies, verbs…. All the art that once illuminated the tower still wails, even after being buried alive…. One day… boom! All that art is going to escape. And it's going to climb the tower, and unleash a storm of light! Love will shine furiously!" —SASHA
