Tim: There's something seductive about reading.
Satoru: Indeed. Engaging texts almost read themselves: pages flow spontaneously as imagery is evoked.
Tim: When text alchemizes the imagination, it's magical. Not all texts have that capacity.
Melissa: Indeed, whereas some texts seem frigid and intellectual, others are sensual and flowing.
Liao: Who knows? It's fascinating to observe how peole 'get off' on various texts. In this way, reading resembles romance.

In sum ways reading
iz like sex –

wurds must be disrobed
tah reveal intent

What appearz on the surface
iz merely fer casual eyes –

passionate readers go deeper
tah explore whure intentions lie

Undressin' texts takes courage
'n a degree ah risk –

yet bi doing so
yawh kun discover

wurds have a way ah
unzippin' imaginations
'n bringin' bliss
