Who trust memory???
patient of Dr More
Comes to him lacking sexual energy
Wanting an artificial performance fix
Dr More directs him to take his
Own outward bound getting outside of his comfortable cul de sac
A rotation ensues
A tangled messy uncharted path on foot
Back home exhausted to wife and into her arms
forgetting his suck of self
Those beginning fumes of divorce
Are no longer his predicament

I seem to recall that they are not the main characters, but I may be wrong on that, given that I haven't read the book in three decades or so. I remember being struck by the man's first name. It seemed as distinctive as the name "Binx" in theMoviegoer. But obviously not as memorable, or at least not to me at the age I am now. Was it "Sully," by any chance? That would at least explain why I'm thinking about the name now. If not, do you recall the accurate name?”
