I am the grit in the gears, the missing bolt, I am the poker of sticks into spokes.
I like to know how things work, but sometimes when I take them apart and rebuild them, I have a few pieces left over.
I am a man, so I tend to leave reading the instructions until after it goes wrong.
And like all men I have a comprehensive mental map of the world and never need to ask directions.
I never get lost, only sometimes I'm late, or end up in the wrong place entirely.
It's what we do.

Cupid and Psyche
Cupid and Psyche, by J.L. David
"I hope", says Psyche's mom "that you were... careful.. whilst I was away?"
"Oh mom, Cupid and me are just friends, stop fussing!"
