Jeopardy! | Eva Swiecki


A hollow stomach is more

apparent at night. Darkness precedes

a desire to be full again.

Me—

and   

you—

there was a time we were over-

dosing on satisfaction: when we sat

on the couch and watched Jeopardy!,

believing that if we shouted out answers

instinctively, we’d get more of them right.

But—

there was always

however

you began to take your time to consider,

and lost not only the relief of a solution,

but the primality in a guttural attempt: the heart in it.

What is the Ceasing of Sex in Romance?
