Such a subject I am for you.
So full of neurosis.
No, Miss, so full of pain.
All of which is true.
You manifest it in any number of ways so you can make sense of it.
But it’s inexplicable.
So the mind creates order around it.
Phantoms, villains, demons.
Those things we understand and can name.
But there is no name for it, Vanessa.
It is a dark root without a name, from which grows illness.
