Ragged Blade presents "He's A Real Boy Now" by Jerry Rabushka

Kabul is 23, Rob is 53. But they're in love! Can they make it work? Maybe so, if everyone around will let them. Rob's mother, a saucy no-holds-barred lady of 78, gets more sex than anyone in the cast, and is tired of seeing Rob get his heart broken by younger men.
Kabul's best friend Xenia has a Goth wardrobe and matching mentality - who wants to die when you can stay here and enjoy the misery? Kabul's new friend John Quince tries to push past the bounds of friendship; with him, even a trip to Old Navy is fraught with romantic possibilities.
Kabul, alone and a virgin until meeting Rob at 23, finds that the world of love and romance is as scary as going it by himself. He has a bizarre ability to see through people's minds, and operating on two realities at the same time. He watched the twin towers fall from a hotel room in New York - that only made it worse. In this world, sharing a cup of coffee can mean more than making love.It all depends what side you drink out of.
New scenes pop up in the middle of old scenes, then suddenly retreat, to capture the wanderings of his mind. Kabul for the first time in his life, gets a gang of friends together; friends, a lover, somebody's mom. For a short while this lonely man has it all, until it starts, almost imperceptibly, to unravel....
