27 To Y. Prostitution is not simply when you sleep With many men at once. Remember Saint Augustine? Stealing is not simply when you break Into somebody's house. We were sitting -- three of us -- At the dinner table. You made me forget who was Whose lover, Which one was your house. We were sitting at the dinner table. You were saying: 'Saintliness is not simply when you Are with many men at once. Remember Saint Augustine? Friendship is not simply when you Come to somebody's house.'
