Listen to faint ringing coming from above,

Echoes of machines dripping oil.

Ceremonial inscriptions surround the smallest machine,

Now spoken aloud to the air

As bright lips chant the names of experiments in one direction,

Meaningful narratives in the other, alternating

And relying mostly on memorization.

Scholars collect data, eyes moving,
