    Summary

    Not for the first time, Marcus wishes he were a poet. Tomas drinks up beautiful words like wine, practically thrives on them. He thinks of his own clumsy attempt at a letter, begun and re-begun until the whole thing had been consigned to the rubbish bin. It was laughable.

    Besides, he thinks, Tomas and Jessica wrote letters because they could not have each other.

    “You have me,” he says, quiet enough that Tomas won’t wake.

    Summary

    Because they don’t do this. Not any other time. Not before laying down in separate beds in grimy motel rooms each night, not over breakfast the next morning. Not after mass nor after last call. Not in the presence of others, not even alone.

    Not ever. Except for times like this.

    When they have both looked death in the face and bid it turn away. When they’ve been run through the wringer, put on display, exposed every raw nerve. When the ultimate expression of God’s divinity has flowed through them—when they’re still alight with it.

    Summary

    Anthony J. Crowley's life seems like it's finally falling into place: his floral shop has begun to gain an undercurrent of appreciation in the design elite of London, and he might have even finally found a boyfriend who looks just right lounging on his Tenreiro sofa. Things seem almost perfect, until one day the empty shop across the street is leased to frumpy fellow Oxford alumni, who doesn't seem to remember Crowley nearly as well as he remembers him, which really shouldn't bother him as much as it does - it was ten years ago after all, and it wasn't even that good of a kiss.
