bamboo shoots do not slide
easily under the fingernails
but require solid force to gain entry

best if your subject is unconscious
so as not to recoil too strongly
from the sharp intrusion

blood will make your hands slippery
before you’re finished with even one
of her pale and clammy hands

burning pain will rouse her
she will tremble and spasm
as you lick your fingers clean
