I Heard What You Said - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You understand me?
What a relief.
I thought I was the only one,
Who left worldly possessions behind...
To come to the aid of someone I loved.
I did that twice.
How many times did you do that?

I did that twice!
How many times did you do that?

I did 'that' twice.
How many times have you done that?

'I have not done 'that' yet.
But I am sure...
I will give it understanding.'

I'm sure you will.
Especially since I've noticed,
Where and on what...
You prioritize your devotions.

I heard what you said.
But I was thinking about,
Where I could store my things...
At the best price for storage.'
