    The yellow cruiser bike is a long-term loan from a friend who is leaving town. My lover gave it to me, she says. My friend is the kind of person who uses the word lover without irony. She explains the many benefits of the bicycle. It shifts gears really smooth, she says, and that seat is easy on the cunt. She is the kind of person who says cunt because she believes the word vagina affirms patriarchy. Vagina means sheath in Latin, she says. My cunt is not your sheath. That’s very interesting, I say.
