A Sesame Street throwback:
No teeth, no biting
No Mexican, Thai, or Indian
No dates at 2 am.
No rumors, no discretion
No laughter at a stupid joke
No flash of recognition at an allusion
No double entendre.
No comfort on granite rocks above the surf
No shivers behind texted innuendo
No cliched absolution in the shower
No palliative for desire.
No reconciliation. No rehabilitation. No respiration.
