Why Didn'T You Say Something? - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

However it happened,
My mind is quick to provide...
Instant distance.
The moment nonsense is sniffed,
I feel myself staring.
And not caring if this is noticed,
By someone I had promised...
I would listen intently.

'You haven't heard a word I said.
Have you? '

Don't be foolish.
Of course I did.
That last comment you made,
Was profound.
You have a lot of vision.
Do you mind repeating it?

'I said...
Some of us wear underwear these days.
And others like to advertise they do not.'

Why didn't you say something?
This is embarrassing.

'I did.
Three times.'
