Platonic Penis Cleaning
When you’re crippled
or get crippled, your body suddenly
doesn’t belong to you
and in my case
my body was passed around to nursing homes, nurses, doctors, nurse aides, brothers and sisters, wives and mother-in-laws.
I became a man without a body — and by body,
I mean a machine society expects you to use to grow the economy. I was just something to maintain, keep living. I live entirely in my mind.
