“Introduction to Propinquity” Lyrics
Mike: Okay, so now, urban setting, present day, an apartment building full of people. They come and going, and seeing each other every day. It’s um, uh, everyone’s in and out of each other’s apartment, it’s a big community, it’s maybe not a family, but it’s very close. There’s a deli downstairs, and uh, they see each other on the street and say hello, and they just know each other real well. He sees her often, and uh, sometimes, he brings her a gift, and she will sometimes uh, fix them both dinner at her apartment. They are together a few nights a week. They are lovers, and one night, standing over the sink in the tiny kitchen, doing the last of the dishes, he watches her a long time in silence, and then, he says this to her.
