Favorite Quote:
Acting is not about being someone different. It's finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there. - Meryl Streep


Rusted over and drained of all life
Lined with crust, cold to the touch,
The deep hum of a dying heater,
Creaking the gate of lost souls.
Chlorine brushing onto slimy fish below,
Broken surfaces lined with weeds
Soft and wet sand layering the bottom
Seeping into the abyss of cracks.

This piece is about what I imagine to be a public pool that is broke down to the point that it's deserted.
