water was everywhere. everywhere. underfin, left and right. and above. stretching endlessly above my head.  i could see light somewhere up above, but only very faintly. sounds seemed to reach me with the same rhythm that the water swells moved on the ocean floor, which meant it had no rhythm. the rhythm was in the randomness of it. the sounds were high and low, alternating. it sounded the way you told me it sounds in movies, the way it sounded in the rocky horror, in the end scene you described to me so well, when janet’s voice echoed in water and between walls and frank ‘n further lay back in the titanic life belt and sang in his beautiful voice, his makeup smeared in flat rivulets in the dark circles under his green-brown eyes, whites redder than a fire. in front of my face was a huge, slightly rounded wall of white cement, irregular and with indentations of irregular sizes. it was a very huge piece of material under the water and although it was not there yesterday, it looked quite beautifully white under the very blue liquid. it seemed to glow in its brightness. nearby was a huge square, flat on the seabed. i moved nearer. it was a picture painted in exquisite brush strokes. ironically it showed a female, unconscious, held by someone who was pulled along by a pulley on wires and huge, huge waves were breaking and swelling and menacing the two figures.  a red piece of material (a scarf perhaps?) was clearly visible, obscuring the face of the seated person. i could see it was clearly a portrait of a rescue at sea. i wondered from which museum it came and blinked my brain at the oddity of finding this piece here. i had to take it with me. it would be valuable and i could probably use it for bartering. i lifted it effortlessly and dragged it with me for a while and then came to a standstill. i turned around. much to my surprise the white. glowing wall now had a definite shape. it was the face a woman with a spiked crown on her head. and she was crying. i wanted to
