to join the gym and I’d like to
change my membership from single
He sat down at his computer,
pulling up my information, saying
how pleased he was that she wanted
to join, he’s seen me so many

knew me so well.

Stephen, I responded, and laughed;
what is it about partner that can
only be a same-sex couple.
