Double Standard (Day 580)

I’m interested in knowing 
why he walks all over me 
stomping heavily on my head 
with his hard-soled shoes
while I’m sick in bed. 

I’m interested in knowing
why he thought no one 
would say he is a liar
when his stories grow 
more ridiculous by the day.

I’m interested in knowing
why he got away with
a heinous crime against
a sedated woman while 
all she got was the blame.

I’m just interested
that’s all.
