Lint Sits In My Pockets

I am here!
Until I am not.
Any precautions you take,
Should be dropped and stopped.

Don't be intimidated by me, please.
Unlock that mind you block.
If I wanted to intimidate,
I'd approach as if a rabid fox.

Or...
Pretend I have something to give,
Like resources I know...
I lied about from the start!

And I am one to admit,
Lint sits in my pockets!
And lots of that I've got...
As if I hoarded it in storage as if stock.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Lip And Nonsense

Choose if you wish,
To strip and whip me...
With lip and nonsense.

Too long have I recognize,
Longevity does not guarantee...
One a smooth life ride.

And I intend to enjoy every bit of it.
Spitting the experience of bitterness.
If there is a taste I can not stomach.

And admitting when and where,
Joy comes to sit and visit.
With a daring to prolong its stay!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  8799.     

Lips 'Eventually' Shut Quick

To rush is to stumble.
What walking is to crawl.
And lips 'eventually' shut quick,
To someone told they know it all!
Realizing they do not...
When their back is against the wall.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Lips Freer To Speak

My hands seem to tremble...
And not as nimble as they were.
My legs seem to shake,
With each step I take.
My vision once clear...
Now without glasses blur!
My words once chosen,
Are quick to blurt and stir!
Blunt are passages,
That dance on my tongue.
And I find myself caught,
As stunned as everyone!
My mind and time...
Are better now defined.
And when I leave an opinion given,
I leave it as delivered...
Without a need to feel it must be driven!
I don't beat around the bush...
Or hide behind the trees!
I finally found who I am...
And pleased to reveal that reality as 'me'!
Although aging has made my lips freer to speak,
It has taken my ass a little longer to flee.
With a bravery intact...
That empowers my pride and dignity!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
