Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

I Have Come To Open A Window


Not to ensure that it is kept shut.
Or pretend the smudges are not there.
And a clarity once now has collected dust.
I want that window opened up!

I have come to open a window.
To allow fresh air in to circulate...
Hoping others deeply breathe and participate,
With an enhaling of reality.
And an exhaling of it to believe as known.

And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
