Taking Two Steps Back
If someone's life experiences exceeds,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
That of others in the same environment...
It becomes increasingly difficult,
To pretend an ignorance.
Since this is an accepted form of communication.
And taking two steps back,
For every half step forward others take...
Actually becomes a refreshing undertaking.
Those seeing someone do this,
Embraces this movement as one they can identify.
And it does not become offensive to them.
