It Is What I Don'T See I Seek - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You say you have been waiting for me,
To express to you genuine love?

Would that be before or after...
You remove,
That weave?
Those eye contacts.
Fake nails!
And false French accent.

'Gee...
What are you using a microscope?
To notice me that close.'

It is what I don't see I seek!
And, somehow...
That makes it easier for me to recognize,
What I desire least.

'I 'know' you ain't talking 'bout me.
'Cause I 'know' I am as fine as Beyond Say,
Halle Berry and Alex Rodriquez! '

Yeah,
Well...
You do have a way of expressing a little bit of each!
