(Check his own) Breakneck pulse
Aesop’s pulse is racing
ACCEPTED COMMENT (Courtesy of Arctyc): This phrase is a confluence of two meanings, and a twist on the colloquial phrase of a “breakneck pace”. It speaks of the individual’s heart racing, and combined with the next line, implies illness from stress or drugs.
