Time and the seasons spiral like a painted design on a cylinder, a double helix of history.
These fleeting weekly words are the links between them, reaching between the chains: AGTC.
Ancient and unlikely combinations synthesised by ionising radiation, raining down like scattered space rocks.
Generously, the seas foam and chemicals reacting form bonds and age-old enmities that we find recorded in the scars of fossils.
Tenacious are those that persist amongst these wretched waters and across these wretched lands.
Conflict drives the evolution of an echo of the very first.
