Delays Experiencedby John Grey
It could be love but, then again, it could be fear, as if you're not the one I gently knock heads with in a bar but the Halloween monster at the door promising both trick and treat. All I know is this relationship that could be forming is fragile. Besides which, there are medical statistics to consider. Past loves are dangerous enough but past sex could be deadly. That's why when, reaching out to each other, it's not just about enjoining hearts but merging tributaries of possibly unseemly fluids. Ignorance no longer works with bliss. Even the merest of likes demands latex. Intimacy itself has become a history lesson, a science project, a medical examination that declares us pure, unsullied. Can romance stand the strain?. Is passion up to all this? We're like an airplane cleared for takeoff. But I can’t help thinking about routes already flown.
