A landscape to be invented

"Imprisoned by four walls
(to the North, the crystal of non-knowledge
a landscape to be invented
to the South, reflective memory
to the East, the mirror
to the West, stone and the song of silence)
I wrote messages, but received no reply."

Octavio Paz, from "Envoi" (cited as epigraph to Henri Lefebvre's "The Production of Space").
