A Man Is Never Jealous

My man loves me
But he’d rather die
Than admit, say it
He demands my whereabouts
Questions where I’d been
Demands a print-out
Of my daily wanderings
A print-out from Map-Quest
Minute by minute journeys
Mile by mile excursions
Demanding who’s on my line
Attempts a quarantine
Dare I flirt
Watching every hip shift
Studying men’s faces
For the slightest interest
In my numerous body parts

He leaves me quickly
Returns a minute later
An attempt to catch me cheating
My man’s never jealous
Just drives himself insane
Worrying who’s going to steal me
Steal me from him
