have you ever smelled a cathedral? have you ever smelled a tombstone? have you ever smelled a sarcophagus?
they smell the same, you know. all that granite dust, and bone dust, and dust and dust and dust.
people wander the halls holding handkerchiefs and rumpled tissues. people are sneezing. people can’t stop sneezing.
i suspect that the moisture in the air is due to all that spittle spent by sneezes.
