The First

It was the first time in decades,
That an American had won the Boston marathon.
I was listening for something else to be announced.
But it wasn't.

'That's terrific.
I heard about it.
What is the 'else' you talk about? '

You know what 'was' significant about it?

'No. What? '

The winner is a man.
A 'black' man.
And American.

'But he was not described that way.
That's change we all can believe in.
You know,
If you had not mentioned it...
It would not have crossed my mind.'

And that's a first for Boston.

'That's the first for America.'

I had not notice that.
Perhaps we are 'all' finally growing up.
Accepting facts and not delusions.

'You should.
Aren't you black?
You should be delusion free by now.'

Yeah!
But I don't feel I have to always be reminded.
Or pretend I'm something that I am not.
Just to make others feel more comfortable around me.

'That's just how significant his winning is.
To all of us...
Who 'are' FIRST,
American.
And becoming comfortable to admitting it.
Without feeling there is a need,
To further qualify anyone to depict with definition.
That's how unnoticeable this significance is.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The First Time It Was Accidental

I apologized for slapping you in the face,
And kicking you down the stairs.

'I appreciate that!
And I accepted your apology then!
Remember?
But...
Why did you do that again? '

The first time it was accidental!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The First Time You Denied My Touch

The first time you denied my touch...
I knew it was getting closer to over,
For us.
The first time you denied my touch...
Our relationship had ran out of 'fizz'.
What did it?

Did you know I was just expecting sex without love?
Then when I'm done,
I'm gone?

You knew that!
You had to.
I was taking you for granted,
And this you knew!

The first time you denied my touch...
It was me.
Not you.
And I knew it too well!

The first time you denied my touch.
I felt an ache slowly creeping up inside,
Of me.
I tried to breathe soft and slow,
So you wouldn't know it.

The first time you denied my touch.
My tears came to fall.
And that was not easy....
Faking a rest,
After a grueling crawl.

'Thank you.
But no...
I am not preparing for the Olympics.
I'm just laying here to meditate on the ground,
For a moment.'

The first time you denied my touch.
Love was not there to respond.

The first time you denied my touch,
I knew you felt it too inside...
I was gone!
And I knew it then,
I had been gone too long!

Too long for you to deny me,
Of what's mine!

'EXCUSE ME?
Repeat that! '

The first time you denied my touch...
I knew it was getting closer to over,
For us.
The first time you denied my touch...
Our relationship had ran out of 'fizz'.
What did it?

Did you know I was just expecting sex without love?
Then when I'm done,
I'm gone?

'That's not what you said.
But you're getting to the point.
I'm in the bed and going to sleep.
What you do with your needs,
That's up to you.'

We just need time to get our booty better!

'EXCUSE ME?
Repeat that! '

The first time you denied my touch,
I knew you felt it too inside...
I was gone!
And I knew it then,
I had been gone too long!

Too long for you to deny me,
Of what's mine!

The First To Be Involved

I am here!
Not to appease.
To then leave feeling guilt if I don't.
I am here,
To be who it is I am.
And any adjustments I have to make,
My Creator will be the first to be involved.
And please...
Do not be offended by my admitting to this.
It's just what I know for me to be true.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
