Jessica Reidy First, he reminded you of Eros in the cave. In Paris, you saw Canovaâs sculpture Psyche Revived by Cupidâs Kiss shortly before you met him, and when you invited him into your bed, you saw his naked form and remembered the statue, and named him Love: delicate, yet masculine, waif-like but sure as the white stone that made his body. Not your usual type but that made him enchanting, refreshing: this one is diâerent, this one is Love. Love reads Beckett and can speak eloquently on Miltonâs Satan. Love kisses you with soft, bowed lips, full of vodka, beneath red velvet. Love leaves you with a taste that is sometimes sour. Love collages his speech from Greek myths and constellations, and reminds you that poetry is meant to be spoken oâ-the-cuâ in cold, dirty streets. Love reminds you just how much you donât know and makes you wish to be better. Love reminds you that youâre damaged and your memory is not to be trusted. When, a few short years later, you are married, and you say youâd like to go for a walk, Love maintains that he did not dissolve into rage, as you remember.
