For A Solitude I Have Found
No longer satisfied
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
To visit dead horses beaten...
Or hear another false statement accepted,
I relinquish to them that right,
To defend their stench...
For a solitude I have found,
In breezes clear that sets me free!
Released from burdens that weren't mine,
To find and trouble me.
As I watch them now from afar
Locked in revolving hostilities,
With a consistent and deliberate
Emptiness they grieve!
Seeming pleased they have recovered reasons,
To live the way they choose to breathe...
With such stagnant activites done,
That has become for them a life of ease!
