    Summary

    The sea is glimmering, a pale haze rising above the waves, and it feels as if a fine veil of precious moire silk is thrown over the whole world. And in this world, Doghead is all alone, trapped aboard his ship, trapped inside his head, vicious, wicked thoughts dancing in his head, a furious fugue of rage and regret. And through it all, an old song haunts him, as alien and intrusive as the savage guilt that has engulfed him.

    In the sea there stands a tower,
    in the tower there's a window,
    in the window there's a girl
    who loves the seamen.

    Summary

    "You might read your own book for a while, you know, instead of glueing yourself to mine." Vinculus would like a break from being read, and also to help another Book remind its Reader. The Cards of Marseille have some things to say, for the sake of both men, and for their own as well.
