'Untitled 05' by Chuck Young

This one’s called, SOMETIMES THERE IS SOMETHING BUDDHIST IN THE AIR WHEN YOU’RE TRYING TO GET YOURSELF OFF

Mostly I think of mouths when I masturbate.

Sometimes just a supercut of mouths,

Some strange (from dream, from subconscious), some known.

Sometimes it’s one incorporeal mouth that I have real life knowledge of.

I think about fingerprints sometimes while masturbating,

Something about imprints

A metaphor, I suppose.

I guess I get myself off to metaphors.

Sometimes I’ll masturbate to non-specific memories.

Sometimes I’ll be blanketed by a comfortable nothing while I masturbate.

It feels pretty good.

If getting off is a tiny death like the French said

Then I guess there is also a tiny rebirth in there somewhere.

Being reborn feels really good.
