A real man respects a woman
her obsession with murder podcasts
and keeps his distance.
He knows not to push her
or movies she doesn’t want to watch
even if she says it’s “fine.”
Not because she doesn’t mean what she says
but because “fine” isn’t good enough
she says it is.
Cause then it’s great.
watch Die Hard on Christmas great
because she doesn’t want to,
or because he loves her,
or maybe because she knows
how to commit the perfect murder.
