See if the paper on pic, it should be linked to from,
describes the possible arguments to .PS -- you aren't giving any.
Examine the output of pic with no arguments, and once you've added some,
i.e. pic passes the .PS line through for the macro package to see so
`pic floorB.pic | grep '^\.PS'' would be interesting.  Then, see what
definition for PS your -ms macro package has, i.e. find tmac.s.  It
probably ensures there's enough space on the page for it and centres it
across the page.

With an understanding of that, you can probably work out what's
necessary to get the result you want, although you may have to do more
work to tell psroff that you've a larger than normal sheet of paper.

This may all be easier with a simpler pic file that still shows the
problem, e.g. line to (60, 42).
