Like “In a Station of the Metro” in a corset,
Like the cyrillic for J Dilla + the kanji for heart-shaped nipples,
Like flames inside of a .wav,
This book is instructions for cyborgs making love.
Though most cyborgs can make love in the traditional manner,
It is common for this to be an uncomfortable experience,
Not only physically—cyborgs contain heavier, non-organic matter—
But much like two mirrors pressed together,
Like a geode used for a cyborg’s heart,
It is recommended you talk to your partner,
Explain not just what you like, but how you’re feeling,
Like how we are textbooks for each other,
Like how cyborgs can just plug in to each other.
Like their machines talk better than their hearts can.
