No Such Thing

There is no such thing as a lovers' oath. - Plato

We were wary, emptied out and folded.
At least we had that in common.

The flowers arrived the day I moved in. They were safe. Platonic.  Delivered by a smiling girl between trips to and from the moving truck.
                 
                  Glad you made it. 
                     - Your first friend in Iowa

He started visiting once or twice a week, first offering to help me unpack, to hang my pictures.

I made him nervous.
