Monologue

JONATHAN

The way you hold her hand. Your girlfriend.
It's sexy. You don't grab her or hold on too tight, but you're not trying to get away either. It's just -- comfortable. Your fingers -- the two of you, the fingers knit together. You're close to each other or you're roaming all spread out but never quite let go. Like it's a part of you. Like breathing.
The back of your neck. It's sexy.
I don't know exactly why. Maybe because I see it all the time in class. Skin. Always exposed. You're vulnerable. It's the part of you that I know best. I have the back of your neck memorized. It's all I could do sometimes not to reach out and touch it.
