Shared Absence

There are those with abilities to maneuver,
Into positions quick...
Without a hint of suspicion,
That their subtle comments made...
Have been selected to degrade.

They're on a mission to undo someone unknown,
But...
They pick and choose,
Those they hope have similar views...
With shared absence of any truth.

Whispered in the ears,
Is something sure to please.
With a leaving out of what was done,
To get someone to seethe.

Fragmented doses meant to mention,
To create descensions that begin.
And...
With intent,
These comments tempt a listening.

Whispered in the ears,
Is something sure to please.
With a leaving out of what was done,
To get someone to seethe.

There are those with abilities to maneuver,
Into positions quick...
Without a hint of suspicion,
That their subtle comments made...
Have been selected to degrade.

Fragmented doses meant to mention,
To create descensions that begin.
And...
With intent,
These comments tempt a listening.

Whispered in the ears,
Is something sure to please.
With a leaving out of what was done,
To get someone to seethe.

Fragmented doses meant to mention,
To create descensions that begin.
With a leaving out of what was done,
To get someone to seethe.
And...
Fragmented doses meant to mention,
To create descensions that begin.
With a leaving out of what was done,
To get someone to seethe.

There are those with abilities to maneuver,
Into positions quick...
Without a hint of suspicion,
That their subtle comments made...
Have been selected to degrade.

With shared absence of any truth.
People pick and choose those to undo.

Shared Like Gifts

It is still a Dutch colony.
With those who control it...
Coming to go,
To inflict their racial acrobatics.

It is divided by invisible fences.
With those of ethnic faces
Displaying their daily infighting defenses.
And there is funding for everything done.
To ensure comprehension...
Is something never to be understood,
With understanding that comes.

They want them at their dumbest.
And that is preferred and accepted.

And those of color who have ever contributed?
The great deeds they have done...
Have been from this place 'booted'.
As if they had made none!
And ignorance is shared like gifts received.
Along with the apartheid obviously applied...
By those who are equally mentally limited.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11599.     

Sharing Irony

This is a coincidence.
I didn't expect to see you here.
Oh...
And by the way,
I meant to call you.
But...
I have been so busy.

'Don't worry about it.
As a matter of fact,
I meant to believe you would call.
Isn't that ironic?
And here we are tensed by coincidence.
Together!
And sharing irony.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Sharing Life

I am familiar with my own voice,
Therefore...
Less influenced by the tone of it.
Or any connection it may have,
To a significance that leaves me convinced...
That perhaps I should make more attempts,
To use another process more direct and effective...
Without the involvement of words,
To describe a tree or the obviousness...
Of birds that fly high in wide skies.

Debating to argue over the known that is shown,
Seems to entertain those unattached.
And seeking to match an unconsciousness,
With limited visions to adjust...
While focusing upon them to repeatedly validate.

I too am familiar with my thought process.
Although it may be perceived,
My observations are my own to conceive.
And sometimes I wish they were!
It would give me more time to find to accept,
My denials and my own unaffected delusions.
And less time would I spend,
Defending what it is I observe that offends those...
Preferring to pretend what it is I 'see' does not exist.
Although claimed it is we're sharing life to experience
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
