acrylic and parchment on canvas 300mm x 300mm


 Time said             to the
mouse that        she met in
 the house        “Let us repeat
  ourselves      again. Unravel
 your code,      to me please 
 expose the      letters that
    make up       your name."
     Said the      mouse to
     fair Time,  “I’ll unravel
       my line,   but take
        utmost   care of
         my sequence
            If you
          drop but a
        letter, I’ll be
    none the   better
    and my       daughter
      cells      doomed to
 senescence”      “Worry not!”
  said Miss       Time, “I’m
copying you         now as we’re
  speaking!        I’ll take great
care of each         strand of your
hair, So please,     desist with your
 squeaking!”           The mouse said to
  Time, “You            filthy old swine!
  You’re clumsy          and lack concentration
   I’ll outstretch        my tail, so my words
    never fail and        I’ll hope for a clean
     replication!”            Tail Tip All 
      Going Going               Gone. Tail
        Tip All                   Going,

                               Going,

                                  Gone.

                                      Tail

                                     Tip All

                               Going,


                               Going,

                                  Gone.
