Repeat after me.

I do not feel slighted.

No, too simple.

I do /not/ feel slighted?

No, too emphatic.

I do not /feel/ slighted?

No, too tremulous.

I do not feel /slighted/?

No, too ambiguous.

/I/ do not feel slighted.

There, that's it.

But if I'm not careful, that last word might be completely extraneous if I keep this up.

My soul needs an inner ear. I feel like I'm seeking equilibrium.
