Draft Model

mechanical man
in designer shorts, mindless
they give him a heart

what’s a heart
without a life source

it pumps electricity
to a battery in his belly
every shot makes him smile

his partner
she has a mind
but no heart

what’s a mind
without a soul

her belly button
plugs into his belly
for a recharge

they join forces
erupting frequent power surges
right there in plain sight

how some gizmos function
is beyond me
do they have no sense
