On filling

For exchanging ideas

For taking a physical space to let our thoughts sink in

To sink

To plunge into the unknown

For the mind to wander and to drift through unknown

territories (to ebb and flow)

A space for sharing


Water flows through me, over me in me out of me.

We are all bodies of water.

We are born through it and made by it

This water runs through you and I

We exchange it in our kisses and our cum and through I. the breast of our mothers

We soak in it and drink it up and excrete it out

It is within us and around us, through us

It is a space to share stories no matter the body.

We are made of water, we aren’t so different,

how did our histories become so vast, and spread

so wide, like a channel made between two bodies of water

Water cleanses, it washes away our differences,

and makes us one, many bodies of water intertwining

into a great sea

(A sea is a good place to feel small)
