I took great care to check out a new therapist, since past therapists had initiated affairs. In my naiveté, thinking them gods, hoping they could make gold out of my straw, I acquiesced. I share my seduction saga with this man who assures me he would never go down the road the others took.

When I weep over my lost husband, he edges closer. I think he plans to comfort me, but, suddenly, both breasts are in his hands, my head forced back in a kiss.

I shove him away and rush out, leaving him next to my abandoned chair.

our house
still empty at sunset
my unfed cat
