I am a Flying Fox, sleeping,
hanging upside down from a tree branch.
Free from tactile and contact pressure
on my painful body.
I am a Manta Ray, gliding,
cruising, dancing in the vast blue ocean.
Silky smoothness on the skin,
feeling oneness with the water around me.
O! In perpetual orbit in space—
Not returning to Earth!
Freedom from gravity pull!
Freedom from chronic neuropathic pain!
