THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL SAYS TO REMOVE THE PUMP FOR INTIMACY AND SWIMMING
I am a creature of cords, clear wire;
something potent. I take you now by the arm
to show you the crevice I come
out of after dark. Smiling nightly, swinging
the long, long anchor, I am nothing
of kisses: when I want to gasp I gasp
and when I want to eat, I eat.
According to the manual,
there are seven moments to understand:
The Production. The Calculation.
The Entrance. The Decision.
The Feed. The Finish.
The manual does not give instructions
for afterward, how to wind yourself around yourself
