the text


this is not the text but the bones of the text
this is the text split, splayed for modification
this is the trembling text, waiting for your touch
this is the vulnerable text, the languid text
this is the text that will do anything for you
this is the text that is open for you alone
this is the text that gives itself to you
this is the text that is your thing

  (make-local-variable 'whywant)
  (setq whywant '( (($ whysay) (// subj) might ($ want) (// obj) \?)
                   (how does it feel to want \?)
                   (why should (// subj) get (// obj) \?)
                   (when did (// subj) first ($ want) (// obj) \?)
                   (($ areyou) obsessed with (// obj) \?)
                   (why should i give (// obj) to (// subj) \?)
                   (have you ever gotten me or (// obj) \?) ))
  (make-local-variable 'canyou)
  (setq canyou '((of course i can \.)
                 (why should i \?)
                 (what makes you think i would even want to \?)

        '((can you elaborate on that and look at me \?)
          (would you love me more if you had to pay \?)
          (continue)
          (($ please) continue\, my eyes are very big \.)
          (go on\, don\'t be afraid of me\, look up my legs \.)
          (i need a little more detail please \- let me come to you \?)
          (you\'re being a bit brief\, ($ please) go into detail \.)
          (can you ($ please) be more explicit\, fill me \?)
          (and\, ohhhhh \?)
          (($ please) go into more detail\, think of me \?)
          (you aren\'t being very talkative today\!)
          (can you see my pretty pretty ($ cloth) \?)
          (why must you respond so briefly \?)))

i say "this is not the text but the bones of the text"
i say to you "this is the text split, splayed for modification"
i bare myself to you "this is the trembling text, waiting for your touch"
i say "this is the vulnerable text, the languid text"
i talk to myself "this is the text that will do anything for you"
you tell me "this is the text that is open for you alone"
you say to me "this is the text that gives itself to you"
you offer me "this is the text that is your thing"
