I wish you could
sip my neurotransmitters through a straw
and live inside my brain for just one hour.
Look through my eye sockets
and perceive what I see.
Breathe through my nose
and smell the stench of despair.
Speak through my lips
and taste self-disgust.
Perch in my ear
and listen to desperation.
Jump into my skin
and touch repulsive flesh.
Experience my world in my body.
