Poem: Under The Rain

Never imagined kissing my other half under the rain in the middle of a storm out of many other places.

Poem: Under The Rain

We first met in church.

We started talking and became friends fast.

Then our second meeting was under the worst conditions you can think of.

It was windy and raining

and I was stuck on the 495 with a flat tire and with no replacement.

At the time, I didn't have much guy friends

except now I had Luke.

We had just become friends and didn't want to ask for his help but it was getting dark

and wanted to get the hell out of there.

With a shaking hand, I called him

Within 10 minutes, he parked behind me.

We exchanged some words and he was about to start on my tire.

When the winds got stronger and lightning appeared.

We both ran to the car, soaked and cold.

He gave me his jacket, he had in his car.

That night, we started to get to know each other more.

We had more things in common than we imagined.

We continued looking at the rain but our eyes would meet once in a while.

Our hands met while trying to put the heat on.

Our eyes meet again, he leaned in...

That night I felt warm and safe, right next to him.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.
