Modern Complexity

Days like this
remind you how silly it is
to get too comfortable
with his skin next to yours
since you can be
turned inside out so easily
when he reminds you
in an innocent and flippant
kind of way
that you’re not the only one
he loves or likes to please—
and because you are
a scavenger for his affection
you laugh and smile
and pretend it’s perfectly
alright with you
that he goes home
hoping to get lucky with her
and for some reason
he wants you to know it.
