Fast Forward - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Why is your fist all up in my face?

'I just wanted you to see my knuckles,
In the event you should say something...
Totally disrespectful.
And I wanted you to see,
What I am capable of doing...
Before your lights are turned off.'

Why would my lights be turned off?
'Only your conversation will determine that.'
We haven't started it yet!

'So far we understand each other.
And I am liking it so far.
I'm ready whenever you want to begin.
And remember...
Keep it respectful.
And let's try to stay away,
From backstabbing relatives, past relationships...
Politics, religion or religious beliefs.
And especially cheating spouses.
I get upset easily.'
