Desc: Science Fiction Sex Story: An unhappy man just had his girlfriend break up with him. She wouldn't tell him why. But now she's back in a really odd sort of way. And he's off on an unexpected adventure with her, one he isn't sure he wants. But he wants her, and the adventure is part of the package. No direct sex, but lots of talk about it now and then.

what if a much of a which of a wind
gives the truth to summer's lie;
bloodies with dizzying leaves the sun
and yanks immortal stars awry?
Blow king to beggar and queen to seem
(blow friend to fiend; blow space to time)
—when skies are hanged and oceans drowned,
the single secret will still be man

what if a keen of a lean wind flays
screaming hills with sleet and snow;
strangles valleys by ropes of thing
and stifles forests in white ago?
Blow hope to terror; blow seeing to blind
(blow pity to envy and soul to mind)
—whose hearts are mountains, roots are trees,
it's they shall cry hello to the spring

what if a dawn of a doom of a dream
bites this universe in two,
peels forever out of his grave
and sprinkles nowhere with me and you?
Blow soon to never and never to twice
(blow life to isn't; blow death to was)
—all nothing's only our hugest home;
the most who die, the more we live

—e. e. cummings
