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.
