Sure, such a gesture might just be another form of coupledom (the binary—distance vs. intimacy). But at least this couple doesn’t promise, right away, that my feelings of disquiet will be relieved by doing what we’re all supposed to do: touch! For I’m less 456 Michael Cobb optimistic about the kind of closeness, the kind of crowdedness, that love and sex often make us believe.
