"Regrets" The comforts of a hardworking man sit on a stark white table. A neat glass of whiskey, choice cigar, and the relief that comes from loosening the tie which he wears. But is there something more to these? Why would he regret working so hard and not be able to enjoy these luxuries at the end of the day? Surely something is missing. The companionship and presence of a young woman, perhaps. Or are these items the gift of his lover. During the time he is away from her, has she left him with these gifts to comfort him and feel closer to her? What deep love and respect she must have to let him go and still support him.
