Knuckleheads

Remember hearing that promise,
To forgive and forget...
After that argument had,
With a mate or a spouse.
Believing that an apology,
Permanently puts a coolness to a heat out?

And then new neighbors move in.
With your mate or spouse becoming a friend.
And then one day you see these neighbors and wave,
To receive a raised eyebrow and a middle finger...
Directed your way and highly displayed?

It's just a guess...
Someone very close to you,
Has either lied or has embellished the truth...
With a doing to leave you unforgiven.

But...
Before jumping to conclusions,
Remember hearing that promise,
To forgive and forget...
After that argument had,
With a mate or a spouse.
Believing that an apology,
Permanently puts a coolness to a heat out.
And 'maybe'...
Just perhaps,
That decision to do it...
Is still needing more time to find,
When that forgetting WITH forgiveness,
Is appropriate to do.
But allow your 'coolness' to stay with you.

'Hi honey.
I just saw the new neighbors.
Have they been over lately? '

~Oh yes.
In fact...
They were here just a few minutes ago.
And you wouldn't believe,
How offended they became...
When I shared with them,
The pet names you give to all our new neighbors.~

'Like...
WHAT? '
What pet names? '

~Don't worry about it.
I told them that's how you are.~

'Honey...
That was more than five years ago.'

~You know...?
You're right.
How can I let something like that slip from my mind? ~

Before jumping to conclusions,
Remember hearing that promise,
To forgive and forget...
After that argument had,
With a mate or a spouse.
Believing that an apology,
Permanently puts a coolness to a heat out.
And 'maybe'...
Just perhaps,
That decision to do it...
Is still needing more time to find,
When that forgetting WITH forgiveness,
Is appropriate to do.
So...
Allow your 'coolness' to stay with you.

'I think I'll go over to invite them to dinner tomorrow.'

~Why?
We don't need those 'knuckleheads' over here.~

Kumquat Trees, Blueberries And Why Bees Buzz?

For those that can not tell the difference between,
The kumquat trees and the blueberries.
Or the lettuce from tomatoes...
And must ask why bees buzz?
Know this...
You will never come to understand,
Why some people prefer to walk away...
Than to answer another question,
You may have about life that will not connect!

There are a few 'more' steps,
That are needed for you to take...
Away from your comfort zone!
And do not wait for assistance to do this.
Do this on your own...
Alone!

Label Yourself Anything You Wish

Why is it that you feel,
You 'must' seek a definition...
To label me and what it is I do?
And I should fit comfortably within,
Your limited boundaries?
If that works for 'you...
Fine!

Haven't I already 'suggested' to you,
Approval and acceptance are not words...
In my vocabulary?
In fact...
I think the notion of both is ridiculous!
Why are you staring at me like that?
It's true.
I do!

Can we at least agree,
You have visions of building bigger boxes.
And I will always find a way to look outside of them!

There is no need to ruin your indigestion over this.
Or roll your eyes.
Call me names.
Or do your offensive thing!
You...
Not me,
Waste time!

I've stated to you...
You can label yourself anything you wish.
Great.
The Best.
Untouchable.
Monkey Doodle...
Whatever!
I-am-not-into-that...period.

What you do...
And how you achieve 'mental security'
Is 'not' going to change...
What OR 'whom' with an 'It' or an 'Is',
That provides my insight.
And that is 'not' YOU!
It will 'never' be you!

Why are you on my doorstep,
Trying to convince me of that?
Why can't you just go home and relax?
Chill out?
Why is it you've got me in your head like that?
You've got to be sexually frustrated!
Or severely impaired by a lack of comprehension!

Labored Dreams

Too long in a deep sleep,
I had to have been.

My ideals now swept away...
In view of the sadness,
Etched on once judgemental faces.

Did they not tease,
And refuse to acknowledge my aspirations?
Believing themselves to keep and dispense,
My every wish...
If they so chose to deliver without suspense.
And they loved to see my anger show.

Those of quickened steps paced,
Kept busy in a haste.
Now slowed by unemployment.
And a loss of dignity.

Did they not do that to me?
Crude and rude and thoughtlessly.

Too long in a deep sleep,
I had to have been.
To witness this stripping done.
And a quality of life lived,
Suddenly gone from some.

With more to come to know this...
Shifting of an economic sting.

Thought by many,
Never to their doorstep to bring.
Not with such a shutting down...
Of their labored dreams.

And the apathy shown...
To those too familiar with their struggles,
Dismissed.
Seem today more now than ever...
To be understood as it is lived.

With few feeling an empathy sincerely given.
Or a willingness to share,
Their dependence on subsidized grief...
That forces them to pinch,
On a daily basis.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
