Halele Centrale Ploiesti, Rumunia

Central Marketplace looks like this: As the pencil describes ​vast​ movements interrupted by precipitous consideration, workers start digging for the foundation. The pencil follows the sense of architect Toma Socolescu and light ​rushes in to uncover it.  I follow intuition down one of the corridor entrances. From the oval balcony of the fish hall, I see endless cold bodies choosing their fish.​

​T​heir scales’ sheen rises towards a ceiling as tall as their waters were deep. The stalls ​on the balcony went bankrupt so ​I can count the windows rushing in with their light to grab ​me amazed. A few plastics left behind remind of the other hall ruffling its busy hour for attention.

Down another corridor, another glance to pay respect to the windows, some dizzy steps, the main hall. From the round balcony, I face the clock tower and its four facets look back at all of the places I could be in. Around the balcony, the meat stalls shine ruby to complement the orange paint and the panopticon interpretation of my hypnosis.

I go between the carry bags downstairs, to smell wafers and count identical stalls, find herbal tea ​to sleep better​. I get carried out by currents of fur coats  and thick heels​, passing by rooms of abounding neon ​cheese. I see ‚goodbye’ in the​ fish eye and end up starring at ​another clock tower​.​

Millions must have passed through these halls to grab their meat and stare at the light​, unaware of the pencil drawing them in.​
