Abstract

Carol Ghiglieri Photo by Elias Gayles fiction he sex with Rob was candlelit and amiable, but for Yvette, the coupling fell flat. She did not blame Rob. He perused her body earnestly, made love to her earlobes and elbows. He was not one of those guys who rushed through the proceedings. She recalled less nuanced encounters-- the maulings she'd endured in her quest to get over Dixon--and she appreciated Rob's genuine ardor. But she could muster little of it herself and at the first opportunity drifted off to sleep. It had been 347 days since Dixon had packed up and left. Over the past year, Yvette had gone out with a whole slew of guys, but with each one the sparks always fizzled because something invisible got in the way. Dixon. Yvette was hung up on a ghost. summer 2014 / THe mIssOurI re VIe W But earlier that day, after a phone call with her sister in Milwaukee threatening some sort of radical intervention if Yvette didn't pull herself together, she'd vowed to try again. Dutifully she'd gone to Craigslist and scrolled through the M4W listings. The posts were endless, each one composed of equal parts bitterness
