Floating in delirium, the slick squid undulates tentacles in my mind once again - cold.
Reaching deep, probing
I smell salt and sulfur
The internal astronaut has drifted too far
My only witness, dripping…
Floating in vast delirium
Imploding, all sensors are numb
Awareness in vacuum
Programming lost as I vanish altogether…
“Now I can see through a new eye.
I can learn from a new mind.
I’m imbued and renewed by (void).”
As I gasp in digital, I witness the reflecting pool
Penetrating the surface, I conjoin both sides
