Directly Remembered - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Do unto me,
As you believe has been done to you.
With a doing coming from whispered tongues,
To accept and perceive I could be that lowly?
And be convinced I am the one?
Well...
This you must agree,
We all are born to express a duality.
And here you are...
Inviting yourself to get acquainted with it.

But you have yet to feel to experience,
The heat I can raise you have yet felt.
And I am going to leave your doing unto me,
Unprovoked? As I choke up in sobbing tears?

Directly remembered with a knowing not to forget.
And 'then' and only THEN can you say,
I did unto you...
Something you can not help but reminisce.
When I leave you to sizzle with a 'hissing' not to dismiss.
Are you ready?
For some reason I can still show you hospitality.
Can you feel it?

I've only just begun to do unto you,
A doing you could have prevented being done.

Can you feel it?
A moisture increase?
This is five years of a forgiving kept heat.
Can you feel this?
This is ten years of a forgiving kept heat.
Hsssss...
Can you feel the temperature rise?
Can you feel this?
This is at least 60 years of kept heat,
I thought I would never use to release.
Would you like a pair of goggles to cover your eyes?
If you wish it hotter...
Just let me know.
I don't want what I do to come as a surprise.
I have some bottled up in storage.
For those who 'might' forget I was the one to forgive!
Is the smoke causing you to choke?
Here...
Rub this oil on your skin.
Think of it as a gift with an intention to provoke.

NO!
I did not call you that.
I asked if you would like me now...
To clip on the wires that connects you,
To the electric switch.

Believe me...
The calling you that would have been easier done,
IF you had come to me for a confirmation.
Here...
It's scented.
Rub this oil on your skin.
Think of it as a gift with an intention to provoke.
