"While I was doing field work in Southern Appalachia, I noticed that whenever I saw a honey locust, I could throw a rock and hit a Cherokee archeological site.
The first man I ever consciously wanted purely for sex.
He had the most beautiful body I'd even seen, and a face — though weathered, in the way that those who have lived hard or fiercely often wear their years — to match. CC was a former surfer who had once resided along California's Venice Beach, and in Hawaii.
We spent the rest of the night moving from honky tonk to honky tonk, songs of busted love or rowdy love or love slow and steady trailing behind us, like smoke, as we sauntered down the neon-lit street, laughing and clutching hands. Running my hands over CC's strong chest, pinning my mouth, tender from his kisses, to his hard abdomen, I felt something unmooring inside me.
When the bars closed, as even on Nashville's Lower Broadway they must, I brought CC back to my hotel room. We used our fingers and mouths to pleasure each other. When we'd finished, CC curled himself to me like we were two cats in a patch of sunlight. I'd been celibate for six months before CC and I came together. I'm 50 years old, and I've spent nearly my entire adulthood in relationships, a series of them, mostly one right after another.
