Splash



A friend came to visit: my model to use!
'Lie like a mermaid'
'Frolic like a porpoise'
'Do a cartwheel!'

She did it all.

Water is another matter,
has no direction but its own bright grace,
runs through all imaginable colors,
takes limpid lessons
from stone,
and in those functionings plays out
the unrealized ambitions of the foam

—Pablo Neruda

The original M was an Egyptian hieroglyph for water
