Of course, you will be back. You will be back and you might even spend months, years, decades with this lover. Mornings and evenings. Fall and winter. Deep in the hot heart of summer: Unwashed hair, nothing but peanut butter in the fridge, dirty dishes, dust, unopened mail, laundry spooling out from the closet, and it’s 2:00 a.m., and you have to up at 6:00 a.m., but you are back again, with this lover, who has long ceased to be a one night stand. It is now your life.
