Gestural Users Interfacing

you're born, you discover your body—

it moves! it make other things move and do things!—

you discover her body, his body

you get to work

work turns to sex

turns to post-coital lethargy, to then

the work of entertaining ourselves

the work of disengaging.

sleeping behind your open eyes,

the machine purrs.


your body is an interface,

how do you touch yourself?

how do you touch your lover?

how do you confirm your amazon order?

swipe across, down, up, in, out

pinch to zoom, bigger, bigger, stop.
