tells her friends that he’s not

jealous,

tells her friends she can leave him

alone,

tells her friends he won’t go astray,

tells her friends a lot of

bull---

knows the truth

that he looks a lot

(they say all men do &

so she ignores the feeling)---

knows the truth

that he’s harder to reach

on the phone when she

wants him

(they say to give him space

cause’ otherwise you’ll

smother him)---

knows the truth

he’s doing something

(and even if he isn’t it burns

at her & she can’t say nothing

because if she does she’s

jealous)---

so,

just what goes in place of

jealousy?

for it doesn’t seem that he’s the

least bit concerned

with where she is or when she is

or how she is or if she’s even

there---

but everybody says that he’s not

jealous & that’s better---

but she could evaporate just like

water boiling in a fucking pan,

still,

everybody says that he’s not

jealous &

that’s better.
