Dustless | Volume 1 | The Sentinels
Far to the east and north of the empire, there are roads untravelled for years. What can it mean to keep watch over a road along which no one travels? What is the purpose of such vigilance? To a true sentinel, any tanzo is the TanZo: any road is the Way; and a man of TanZo will always be vigilant, even if those who charged him to keep watch have long ago forgotten his existence…

Unfathomably remote, this is a world unto itself, a polluted and a desperate land, which surely even the Dustless One has abandoned. Yet, even here, where so much is dying, life is stirring. What is it? And how will it grow?



Ultimate epic…

Let the stars sleep: the river will hold them.
Let the river sleep in the night’s arms.
But who will hold the night?
Me. I will. And nothing shall come to harm.

My life rises like blossoms in spring,
like new flowers stir upon the branch.
Death is merely a reflection of stars
in water like a running mirror:
it is not the stars themselves.

My life rises like stars at dusk
and wheels above my head.
And I will watch over the world tonight
and turn to face you, my love,
and turn my back on the mirror.

Turn my back on the mirror…
Turn my back on the mirror…

And I will watch over you tonight, my love,
and so turn to face my world,
and turn my back on the mirror…

Turn my back on the mirror…
Turn my back on the mirror…

…Zy heard a song coming from an open air café, set among gardens on the edge of the SietTon.

…oh, do not leave me so soon,
but allow sleep to take you back again
into the morning, and let the sun rise alone.

When the world of dreams is so beautiful,
why struggle to wake?
For once the day’s long labour is over, after all,
you will only sleep again.

I do believe, the world itself, the planets and the stars
in their hearts all crave to sleep,
that sleep is the deep desire
of all things.

So rest, my love, here with me.
When all of life is just a wheel of dreams,
let us choose the dreams of sleep
and not of waking
to make ourselves complete…

It took Zy some time to work his way around the café…
