By soundless bounds it extended and distended, by quick
Great leaps it rose, it flushed, it rushed to its full size.
Nearly nine inches long and three inches thick,
A royal column, ineffably solemn and wise.
I tested its length and strength with a manual squeeze.W. H. Auden.
I bunched my fingers and twirled them about the knob.
I stroked it from top to bottom. I got on my knees.
I lowered my head. I opened my mouth for the job.
My Big ‘Ed is bursting
with the joy of the unknown.
My Big ‘Ed is expanding a thousand fold.
flies about the world.
All seek separately
the many faces of my Beloved.Rumi/Cox
