The Name of the Game


What is the name of the game? This coming from Bryan Ferry, I assume it’s the sublime art of seduction, the game of romance. To call it a sport might sound crass and evocative of nothing better than predatory dudebros, but… it’s a sport alright. The sport of reeling them in and making them think it was their idea. Strictly catch and release, of course. No wildlife harmed. If you’re lucky you won’t get eaten or mangled by the prey. If you’re decent you’ll follow the campfire rule. If you’re classy you will feel no shame. You can never shed enough blood. You bleed and you lick your wounds and you return to the hunt.
