Net Enclosure

Net Enclosure | Moses Lake, WA | 2018

Sages have noted that it’s the holes in nets that make them effective. Emptiness = usefulness. But I couldn’t quite figure out the use for this large, two-story-high netted rectangle. At first, I thought it was for sports practice — tennis or soccer — but the multiple uprights would definitely interfere. Then near a locked gate I spotted a small placard: “Flight Test Lab #7.” Perhaps for radio-controlled planes? For drones? Or maybe for mutant pigeons? Their genetically-modified wings would allow them to fly faster, make sharper turns. I soon departed, fully appreciative of the gaping hole in my knowledge of net enclosures.
