'We seem to be standing on the edge of a swimming pool looking across to its far side. Or perhaps we are in it, sitting in the shallow end (there is a sign on the other side indicating the depth over there is 7 foot). It is an outdoor pool, with buildings from the house it belongs to off to the left. The house is sited in a lush tropical landscape, and behind a raised terrace, trees proliferate and interweave with each other. Outdoor furniture is dotted around the pool as are various sculptures. Off to the right Rodin’s lovers embrace near the metal stair you use to climb out. In the foliage three of Brancusi’s Endless Columns sprout. The pool looks like it is waiting. Waiting for you to make your move and dive into whatever the next moment in this series of overloaded present tenses holds.'
