You're here alone, and your husband's who knows where, maybe even dead. And love's only a feeling; it's not real.
But it's a good feeling, and it's real, and it's true.
True? The only thing true is an empty stomach. And feelings are something you have between your legs, like an itch. You can't do it on an empty stomach and with someone who isn't here. Your sweetheart over there, he's here, and he ain't starving, and he's got a feeling for you.
