ABSTRACT

“Denise called me. She wonders why we can’t meet. Yet she doesn’t ask me to and I don’t ask her. We hint. We tantalize. But we don’t do anything. I’m not sure how much we even want to. She doesn’t want to come back into therapy. But doesn’t want to break off our contact either. She tells me how unhappy she is with her husband. She makes me want to be with her.”
