Whatever that was you were,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
And thought I didn't see...
I saw the moment you appeared.
To disappear instantly.
Believing yourself to be faster,
Than what I can observe.
Just because I do not acknowledge it.
Or belabor a spoken wish to have clarity...
My mind has captured its vision.
And clarification with the patience I give it,
Has seldom deluded my ability...
To put pieces together to make a seamless fit.
I can pretend not to see what's going on,
In the basement of mansions behind thick stone walls.
Or someone who attempts to fake an existence.
But reeks with sleeping with demons!
