Receiving Feedback at a Meeting The feedback began to hurt my ears. It built up, and built up, until the screaming was tangible. It invaded, skulking at the back of my mind, its long shadow growing until it overtook everything, but I knew this was not my song. I was stuck with it now. Whatever! I should've expected the stain. I felt myself unnaturally transfigured. A perversion of form entrapped in a reflective cocoon. Ultimately, release was self-induced and was finally free on the streets again.
