This caught some of the feelings I've had but never thought to put into words.

Really liked this: we darted the portrait galleries / of these fragments of lives / chipped into stone.

Superb.

A nice surprise and very much appreciated! The dog stared at me like I'd lost my mind having a run-through of reading this out loud earlier - good times.
