  • I fell in love on Valentine's Day.

    Her name is Dr. Beatty. She asked me to tell her all about it. She listened close while I tried to make sense. She wrapped me up in warm blankets and gave me relief.

    Like most love affairs it was intense and ended quickly. She had exactly what I needed.

    So much intimacy. Strange Intimacy.

    I don't even know her first name.
