graf of day

A little piece from Alan Moore's "Voice of the Fire," specifically the first chapter, which is narrated by a man in 4000 B.C, who in this scene has just happened across a stone with "markings like to worms and net-mites" scratched onto it:

"I's people say as is no good in it, to make of markings. Markings take they shape from tree and dog and like, and make that they is tree, that they is dog, yet is they no thing only markings. If man look on they, he's gleanings is all come to queer, that he may glean not which is world and which is mark... It is not good, to look on markings."
