Arresting Desperation-ing

We are not being devoured in the jaws of hungry wolves; we are simply being progressively
herded and are herding ourselves on into invisibility by the gumming
(spinning/serpentine-ing) and desperating hallucination-ing of our arresting childhoods.
Children are always good at pretending to be somebody other. Their circumstances fetally
swaddles them behind the existential shield of making-believe (vicariosity).
