“Q. Could intimacy with robots lead to greater social isolation? 
Short answer: Of course. But you knew that.” 
- Gina Smith, “Full Monty: Our Sexual Future with Robots, Detailed” 

touch me with your plastic lips  
and hands of cold rolled steel
then make me feel your molded hips
and gasp with breath unreal

your algorithms make me hot
I kiss your naked code
Just offer me your circuits taut
I’ll hack your pleasure mode

Spent within your toaster arms
an emptiness I feel
Though tempting are your hardwired charms
why can’t I make it real?
