let's go swimming

just learning how images work

• Composed on

2.6m square feet

teflon covered fiberglass sails

porthole windows barrel glass vaults

meant to emulate ocean waves

i ask my mother to drive past this place several times a week

remember how it feels to be towered over the edge of something cold and grey

this weekend i went inside for the first time in years

like most people, I Like Pop Culture

but comic con has always been more a social and sensorial thing for me

but it's odd experiencing familiar imagery in a space within an unfamiliar context. went the first day and felt


i guess

it's always nice feeling secondhand excitement from participating in communal activities whether you care about the thing or not

when i went back it was empty

trying to remember how to move within the rhythm of a crowd

couldn't get the nerve up to go again until the last day. spent the intermediate time wondering if the thing that occupied my thoughts was anything

or if i was just losing my taste for Outside

wandered around

the convention center and surrounding area

by myself in silence
