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.
