The Sex Back Then

So he turns to her; his faintly stubbled, fair-skined face hovering above his glass of wine like a puff of smoke in the dim light. When he speaks his words seem trailed off in reverse, isolated as his looming lit head above the shadows. They are revived from where they sank into the tar of forgetfullness of years ago, before the separation and the abortion and the business trips – before the hopeless romance between them ended.

He says, “You know, I do miss the sex when we were together – that’s one thing I can’t get over.” He pauses, lowers his glass and folds his hands delicately over the crisp white table cloth. “I don’t mean always the sex with you, per se, but I do miss the sex I was having then.”

“I know,” she breathes. “I know.”
