An Excerpt From a Work Intended to Be Read After Death

Butterflies won’t help you here. Chasing them, catching them, pinning them to display boards and so on. We have come to accept this reality. Probably best if you do so as well. The absence of pain is disconcerting at first, but you get used to it. There’s nothing to injure, so don’t worry about it. Sensation was always problematic anyway. Wasn’t it? We offer advice. You don’t have to take it. Please make noise. It helps everyone. There is the question of haunting. The temptation is always there. Resist it. You’ll make more friends that way. Welcome to our world.



And masterful use of the "Wasn't it?" So freighted.
Whoops, that was me. Deleted my cookies without thinking through the consequences. I'm sure it's a metaphor for something. Have re-identified myself to the world at large.
