Hold That Blade Gillette
cold; metallic; warm to the tongue; it has moving parts; I move my thumb over it’s opening — it could hurt me! but it doesn’t; feels delicious; what a beautiful shape; power contained; I did lick it but carefully and I was not injured: it has what looks like a logo at the bottom of the handle which is wearing off; the object will surpass the maker and be the maker at it’s best; It has open windows; shafts for air at it’s mouth between the sharpness . . . one side cuts so I’m careful. It never quite warms up in my hand, yet I feel we are related.
