He dreams of influence
He is only mildly embarrassed of the times he got caught staring at a woman's butt
She turned around suddenly and caught him before he could avert his eyes

Intimately not intimate

All he can recall is what events framed a meeting
What shared experiences constitute something more

These people are more real in what they leave behind than what he touches, sees, covers himself with reluctantly during a day spent in labours
