interesting sidenote: parallel to poetry, there is a painting competition. Paint yourself into the Tate Modern.
now i long for Rothko again. there's this memory popping up whenever i hear the name Rothko combined with Tate Modern. me, there, in the Tate, for the first time. entering the Rothko room. realizing how huge his paintings are. and how misleading art postcards can be.
