"c: not a sound only the old breath and the leaves turning and then suddenly this dust whole place suddenly full of dust when you opened your eyes from floor to ceiling nothing only dust and not a sound only what was it it said come and gone was that it something like that come and gone come and gone no one come and gone in no time gone in no time"

That Time, Samuel Beckett

That Time was written for Trio Accanto with all my thanks for their inspiration and patience.
