Allowed To Exist To Ignore It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Why does it seem,
You have negative things...
To say about people?

'You are right.
I should observe the negativity,
Allowed to exist.
To ignore it like you do.'

I'm not ignoring it,
I just. I just...

'Adjust? '


'Adapt? '

No. It's not that.

'Then what is it you do?
Besides defend it.'

I don't defend it.
I just. I just...

'I know.
You just can't find the words.
Even your response is on a fence.
And yet...
Not one positive thing can you say.'

At least I'm not negative about it.
