What a Woman Does



What a woman does is what
A woman must: Walk fast
In heels beside her man;
Be home in time to make
Her man feel at home
In his own house; interpret
A complete conversation
Since he obviously understands
Too little to respond; Maintain
A career and relationship
While her man keeps his career;
When he smiles, she succeeds;
Hold her man up at the end
Of his brilliant career (setting
Hers aside, even if she is an
Equally famous painter) to care
For him until there is nothing
Left to give.  Love like this is
Left out of the painting, heart
Breaking and Lonely, but we know
There are men who do the same.
