Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Any Brusies On 'This' Moon?


Do I give consent to those who resent,
My actual experience to disrespect.
As if in their doing of this,
I express not being upset?
I don't understand your question.

'Aren't you embittered?
Seething to seek upon them a revenge? '

You must be on their agitation committee?
Only a fool would take upon a task,
To willing ask such a foolish question.
But I will reveal this fact!

'WHOA.'

Now...
Do you see any bruises on 'this' moon?
I don't receive them.
I leave them.
But not in the ways they assume.
I let my faith unshakened handle that.

And how sleep seems a goodly thing
