Chang-rae Lee

“We nearly pressed each other to death, our swollen lips and eyes, wishing up on ourselves the fall of tears, that great free anger, that great obese heft of melancholy, enough of it piling on at once so that sometimes whether we wanted to or not we made love so hard and gritty we had to say fuck to be telling the very first part of the truth. In the bed, in the space between us, it was about the sad way of flesh, alive or dead or caught in between, it was about what must happen between people who lose forever the trust moment of their union.”
