Great Regulars: In contrast, [Hadara] Bar-Nadav begins

a love poem, "The Sun Also Lonely," as a negative definition: "When I drink milk less lonely/When I hear the upstairs neighbor walk across my bed less lonely/Or take a shower in unison with him less lonely."

 The poem continues to catalog activities shared with a partner, including erotic encounters, as not adding to but instead subtracting from properties of a solo life.
