Fibrous Triangle

"Along the core runs a clammy circle"

It is a soft and plasticky tube1 that tapers at the edges. A short stick2 is attached to one end. / Shallow grooves and small bumps3 are unevenly distributed over its surface. / It is filled with continuous wet matter,4 with no cavities. The closer to the core, the wetter. / Along the core runs a clammy circle,5 and in it an equilateral triangle6 made of fiber. / A perpendicular fiber7 grows from each vertex of the triangle. / The fibers intersect and form cells. Inside each cell, covered in mucous, a grain8 floats.
