Recessing into the bed spread. My head has never felt such weight.
These quandaries, such curiosity. This fountain will blooms against this fray.
Omniscience of everlasting everything. Expanding in these veins, the expanse of infinite space.
I attempt to quell this fear!
In this new light, i bathe.
Conundrum that I quantize with this shattered self.
Now I’m not spectral as I fall.
I can see, things were what would have been air.
Phantasms, passing through matter itself.
Before my outstretched hands, were three corpulent grasps clasped.
Grounding me, before everything I saw turned to black.
Though I was floating, now in darkness where I stand.
Pews come into view.
Below these seats
Jagged impalement of kneeling flesh.
Ravaged by balls of cotton and twine.
There in the darkness a pulpit stands.
Tanooki guarded mass of flesh, staring back.
A hulking mass of which I’ve never seen. It turns a shoulder to me.
Fear imbued in me, consuming what’s left of me. Humanity.
Who let you in here?
Welcome to the void.
