Nicholas Montemarano, "Other Bodies"

First person POV story about desire and sexuality. It's really thoughtful and psychological in its delving into one man's sexuality and what he desires and how in which he desires sexual relationships and most importantly how they change over time as he gets to know a woman.

"Other Bodies" is in the current issue of Agni, number 80.

Favorite Lines:
"I still had the desire, stronger than ever, to dominate somebody's body with my own, and with my words."

"If only I were enough for myself, I would not need to look."
