Not to get all music nerdy on this, but given the instruction "da capo" at the end of the piece, shouldn't the right-hand navigation arrow take us back to the first page?

Twisted and evocative in concept and allusion and word, this art has made me at once sick and full of hope.

Thank you for it.

Very enjoyable. I loved the "Da Capo" at the end. A bitter joke for any of us that have played music.

That was wonderful, in the terrifying, full-of-desperation sense. I love it. Thank-you.

Your skills blew me away in 9 pages, how perfectly circular, gutting, gorgeous. I had no idea your painting skills matching your writing... Wow.

Very beautiful. I am glad to have read it. Puts me in mind of "Leaf by Niggle" by Tolkien. Thank you.
