I felt a Funeral, in my Brain Summary

An unidentified speaker gives a description of a funeral, complete with mourners, that she tells us she "felt in my Brain." She hears the mourners and the sounds of the service, though it's unclear where exactly she's situated in the imagined scene. The sounds of the funeral seem to exert a growing pressure on the speaker. Eventually she breaks away from the scene entirely to recount something resembling an epiphany, which involves an encounter with the bells of the heavens, philosophical statements about the nature of being, and reflections on the nature of human existence, and culminates in the speakers' "dropp[ing] down, and down" into a realm apparently outside the reach of human knowledge.
