Pinch my skin for all things dreadful that run, uncaged, within my mind. I would slap myself, frivolously, but for the warning written on the bottle of Negative Reinforcement: May not work on all, causes excessive irritation. Do not get in eyes. So here I am, reclined on the cusp of inevitability, arguing bitterly with a tiny cartoon cricket and an invisible giant rabbit. Growing weary. Self-censoring, I hide even the most poignant of my arguments (wishing to shield my eyes from fallout I cannot control), knowing that they would find my thoughts just as I do -- repulsive.
