The Last Library

Further information to follow.
For there is a wind or ghost of a wind
in all books echoing the life
there, a high wind that fills the tubes
of the ear until we think we hear a wind,
to lead the mind away.
— William Carlos Williams' "Library" via Susan Howe’s Spontaneous Particulars: The Telepathy of Archives
WRAPPING UP THE LIBRARY
