Manimal dressed as Manimal

let's be kind
& divine: numbers or letters
as breasts
& what we promise; togetherness
from experience; a fine thing
softer than a canaries feathers
almost senseless - it is so good
at its choke, it's heartland
a courtesy akin to a greater
dignity
we have concocted proof
that the sacrifices were well
worth doing
