I'm jealous of your checked cobalt shirt
it gets to wrap itself around you
from morning to evening.

And your pale blue Levis that hang around
your waist, your bum, your thighs,
I'm jealous of them too.

But mostly I'm jealous
of your black leather jacket
with the brown suede patches

because you put it on
when you walk away
from me.
