Something Else Unstated

What is it that one 'should' expect to accept?
That which is told and thought to be correct.
Or another version of it,
To then be told what was first said and heard...
One should forget since it was not meant,
To be intended to be interpreted...
For anyone to take seriously.

'Then why say these things at all?
What is the purpose? '

~Today?
I've learned not to analyze one's intentions.
Or the depths of their honesty or purpose,
To avert away from it.
It has become too easy for anyone,
To change what they initially say...
For something else unstated,
They claim to have meant.~

'Why bother to make attempts,
To have a meaningful conversation? '

~How can that be done?
When people have not experienced,
The benefit or purpose of having one.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11198.     

Something Experienced

How can some live their entire lives,
Without the seeking of fresh expressions?
Or to open a gate,
And walk away from a locked box.

Some...
When they dare,
Do step away.
Returning to that locked box,
To open the windows but not to stare.

But find themselves surrounded,
By something experienced...
That brightened up the atmosphere,
They decided to bring along to invite inside.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Something Finally Believed

Why are those now so concerned,
About a budget?
When then they expressed no limits seen.
While feeding their greed that became obscene?

Why are they concerned,
About jobs they consciously outsourced...
To leave those here incapable of earning.

And they wish to convince,
Everything done they do makes sense?
To who?
Their tailors paid to keep them in expensive suits?

Well...
Maybe if they defined themselves as 'mindless',
It would be something done admitted.
And something finally believed,
Many would agree has validity and substance.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11200.     

Something Fowl to De-feather

Time is trying so hard,
To be kind...
To a longing entrapped in my mind.

I am aware my impatience holds,
Onto contemplation.
Enforced within a dancing hesitation.
As I consider...
Being available to blind dating.

And that expectation,
To inspect a prospective soulmate...
Stays attached to my awaiting fate.
Although my deflated ego,
May be used as temporary bait!
During these times,
I am reminded of my aging.

And yet...
When I hear knocking at my door,
I don't expect.
I wonder aloud...
'Is this an opportunity I should explore?
Or could this be a certified letter...
Being delivered I should ignore?
Or allow.

Is it another 'bill'?
This 'could' be a Mary! '

I look...
And discover,
It's my neighbor!
Ready to gossip as before.
('What a damn bore! ')

'Wouldn't it be easier,
To conduct a random survey? '
I am asked...
As my neighbor enters and passes,
Me.
'At least you would roam...
A few steps away from your own,
Comfort zone.'

No!
That would ruin my flair for ambiance.
And homegrown hospitality,
That would be left begging to be shared.
I know someone for me will come...
To sniff the bliss scented air.

'Before or 'after'...
This misting of your 'BS' is released?
To spare those who prefer minted geese? '

Hmmm...
What are you implying?
Should I...
Or should I not,
Continue to spray my place with curry?

'You want a ram or a lamb...
To spice your heated sheets? '

Good question.
I had not thought...
To lay my chops on mutton!
I had been thinking,
Of offering something fowl to de-feather!
Hoping it to please,
The taste of one seasoned....
And ready to de-frock for a bit of frolic.

'Then you must add a hint of garlic,
And roast with vitamin-E! '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
