LimboButterflies. Their wings beating at some invisible barrier, preventing them from flying free. I feel them getting angry at being caged and they start beating their wings harder, flapping so hard it almost hurts my insides. I tell them to shut up and be silent. They quiet down and settle in a less desperate flight around my bowels.
I’m scared. I see a wide open horizon, with a sun, white-hot, blazing at me, trying to scour me away, scorch me, engulf me and eviscerate me. The heat and light are so overwhelming I turn away.

to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
