dear reCAPTCHA

by Abigail Marett

dear reCAPTCHA respondent is pleased to confirm she is not a robot

dear reCAPTCHA and as proof respondent would like to present the fact that she has eaten an orange

dear reCAPTCHA and felt her teeth puncture into its muscle

dear reCAPTCHA and had the sweet acidic blood run stickily over her chin

dear reCAPTCHA and has run her fingertips over the waxy sheen of the skin

dear reCAPTCHA and the pad of her thumb over the rough intimate inside

dear reCAPTCHA and smelt the sharp life gather under her nails

dear reCAPTCHA and so respondent hopes that is enough proof that she is not a robot kind regards thank you
