Within this town
A thousand people move.
I am unknown to them, right now,
Who move within this town;
But will collide
Or steer a course to harmonize
Within their passing tracks.

How many men has God laid out
To glide towards my movements
In this corner of the world?
How many will be moved?
How many will collide?
How many men has God laid out
To slip within His Realm?

Paul Lloret, October, 1971


This is a carbon atom, the basic scientific component of life on earth. The faces are undefined because you have not met them yet. You only know what they do, proton or neuron, not who they are. The six cars are electrons, zooming along their path with no destination seen other than smearing the landscape with chaotic repetition.
