Meditations on Flesh and Water
Warm water runs over my skin in the deep bathtub I am using at a friend’s house. Light and shadow play all around me. I think deep profound thoughts then they slip away leaving only vague impressions of feelings. This seems like par for the course as I am pretty sure my mind is now made of Swiss Cheese.
