You imagine the bath tub running over and filling your concrete and steel Quonset hut.

Like a jelly fish, you float and you dance. How calming this is.

You are here in this fish tank with its backwall a steel reinforced polycarbonate sheet.

It's lines refract the suns rays and fill the space.

Bubbles from agitating the water from movement appear.

It's a constellation, similar to the one on your face.

You grow 2 legs and 2 arms, a head and a torso.

Inside of your ribs cage within your torso is a beating heart.

The locking hairs which have sprouted from your heads scalp are like tentacles.

Hold on to your heart, honey. Keep it moving… 

Love, Karissma Yve
