You Are One Of A Kind - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Can you tell me 'why' is it,
When you make a visit to my home...
It's as if you are making a grand entrance?
And everyone has their eyes focused upon you.
Why can't you enter like everyone else?
I had not noticed 'how' I entered your home.
I can make a suggestion.
And we could practice it if you like? '
Anything other than that smoke machine you use.
'You know I am only teasing.'
I'm not so sure.
What's your suggestion?
'I'll call before I arrive.
I'll enter through the back door.
You then turn off the lights.
As soon as you believe I am standing,
In the middle of your living room...
Turn on the lights.
And then I'll simply say...
Although not as exciting,
As my arrival unexpectedly.
I do think the touch,
Will ease that 'flair business' you dislike.
You want to try it?
'You are one of a kind! '
I have other entrances from which you can select,
If you like?
I am only here to be a guest.
Not to absorb all of the attention,
As you suspect happens.
