Sexually Active

“Are you sexually active?”
His stethoscope gleamed in the light
Of the hospital room.
I answered curtly.
With three girls,
I kept to myself.
“How many partners?”
He caught me.
He never looked away from the computer.
“Do you use protection?”
He didn’t get it.
I answered curtly again.
Should I?
“What method of contraception?”
I remained calm.
His ignorance
Could be percussed
With the bones in his very
“When was your last period?”
