- cattle prods:
I cancelled my credit cards later that day, but I couldn't shake the feeling that I was forgetting something. I felt as though a small but critical portion of my brain had been wiped -- no, scoured clean, with a coarse grit. I ran though the hypothetical contents of my hypothetical wallet over and over: cash, credit cards, photos -- those were the worst, the most irreplaceable, and... what? A ticket? A claim ticket? A movie ticket?
The clean, pure electricity had reset me, and left me cold.
- egg whites:
The protein helped. By early evening, I felt a little more like myself, I think. In any case, I felt a little more like someone, and a little less like a freshly washed white board. Nobody called about a missed appointment.

I woke up with a start. "People come, people go. Nothing ever happens." The words echoed in my mind. A film.
The hole in my mind was being filled -- I could feel it. Accretions of associations, random silts settling from my mental waters. I'd lost the word for them, these odd, imagined fellows which had no home, these
intellectual vagrants. I had no defense against them, either.
I fell asleep, again.
I dreamed of words, so many words. Words like thunder, like gemstones, like flaws. Words that had never existed, that could not exist. Words which were not me, but which summed me, completed me. I dreamed, and I was nothing but a process.
In the morning, I awoke in a hotel bed. The previous night had faded into day, like
the moon beneath the onslaught of the sun. In the warmth and light, I began to feel whole again.
Time heals, they say, and I guess it does. I remember, and sometimes that is a blessing. Sometimes the memories are fond, like a beloved film, seen again for the first time. Sometimes they are melancholy like a list of things to do, now beyond action. Sometimes, they make no sense, and those, perhaps, are the most inspiring.
