An Attempt At Jealousy Analysis



Author: poem of Craig Raine Type: poem Views: 23

So how is life with your new bloke?

Simpler, I bet. Just one stroke

of his quivering oar and the skin

of the Thames goes into a spin,



eh? How is life with an oarsman? Better?

More in--out? Athletic? Wetter?

When you hear the moan of the rowlocks,

do you urge him on like a cox?



Tell me, is he bright enough to find

that memo-pad you call a mind?

Or has he contrived to bring you out--

given you an in-tray and an out?



How did I ever fall for a paper-clip?

How could I ever listen to office gossip

even in bed and find it so intelligent?

Was is straight biological bent?



I suppose you go jogging together?

Tackle the Ridgeway in nasty weather?

Face force 55 gales and chat about prep

or how you bested that Birmingham rep?



He must be mad with excitement.

So must you. What an incitement

to lust all those press-ups must be.

Or is it just the same? PE?



Tell me, I'm curious. Is it fun

being in love with just anyone?

How do you remember his face

if you meet in a public place?



Perhaps you know him by his shoes?

Or do you sometimes choose

another pinstriped clone

by accident and drag that home



instead? From what you say,

he's perfect. For a Chekhov play.

Tall and dark and brightly dim,

Kulygin's part was made for him.



Imagine your life with a 'beak'.

Week after week after week

like homework or detention;

all that standing to attention



whenever his colleagues drop in

for a spot of what's-your-toxin.

Speech Day, matron, tuck-shop, Christ,

you'll find school fees are over-priced



and leave, but not come back to me.

You've done your bit for poetry.

Words, or deeds? You'll stick to youth.

I'm a stickler for the truth--



which makes me wonder what it was

I loved you for. Tell me, because

now I feel nothing--except regret.

What is it, love, I need to forget?
