the new thing in my eye

Whatever jellyfish-like entity had been in my eye before has long since gone, but this morning its shift was taken over by an even more imposing piece of flotsam that resembles either a squid or the nebulous chalaza that clings to the yolk of a raw egg. It's big, whatever it is, and it's actually a bit disturbing to see it moving around, casting its enormous shadow as my eye movements make it zag and zag wetly inside my vitreous humor. I'm gambling that this, too, shall dissolve eventually, but because this object is so much larger than the previous floater, I'm also gambling that it'll take a lot longer to disappear. I'll do my best not to go crazy in the meantime, but it's very tempting to find an eye patch.
