As before, the log will be accompanied by extracts of poetry from the private collection of Dr Tomm.

Be still, spirit.
Flutter no more at my heart.

Be calm, heart.
Rise up no more to my throat.

Be silent, throat.
Sing no song of questing love.

Be free, love.
You are answered and need no more.

Venlar III.4, ‘Marriage Call’, Trans Goldman
