Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Everything Has Become Deflated
Have you lovingly blocked me out of your heart?
In some unconditional love movement,
To prove to others you have massive love to give.
And I became self centered and spoiled with it?
I do miss it.
The belief I was given your affection exclusively.
But now I see,
You have become elusive.
And no longer are we on a first name basis.
What is your name again?
It's good to see you again.'
You 'use' to call me 'Hustled Muscle'.
It seems everything has become deflated.
And at these prices it has become too expensive,
To remember who gave which gift to benefit.'
