Getting A New And Clearer View - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
What are you doing?
'Getting a new and clearer view.'
How is that possible through binoculars?
And at this distance?
'I was told that using a microscope,
I was too close and missing...
A personality that was filled with warmth,
And an overwhelming concern for others...
I just couldn't see because I had probed too closely.'
Have your perceptions changed at all?
I actually detect a movement.'
You are looking at the leaves moving,
As the wind blows through the trees.
So what is that stick making animated movements,
Next to them? '
That's then one they are trying to promote,
As having charisma.
What is it do you think he's doing? '
You didn't hear this from me...
I think he might be dancing.
