“RESPONSE.” a poem, a.k.a.: “A Response To Upset Poetry Readers From The Mystic Poet.” SATURDAY: November 2, 2019

Thank you, Mr Grey
Sir πŸ‘„

Yes, please, protectYourself againstTheLikesOfMe, WhatYou consider abuse and or treachery. IF you see me as an abusive and treacherous guy,

I AM, but (please, I hope) realize I don’t (consciously) INTEND to make you cry,]

To hurt you or abuse you, but, if my poetry, lateness or anything does,

Shades of Grey πŸ‘€

I APOLOGIZE to any precious, sensitive aspects you might have just because,

I REALLY DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO,

Except (for now) be VERY “on time” and see this thing through,

THIS THING which is a relationship with a wonderful [gal or] guy,

Who has, arguably, very strong opinions&expects exactitude; I won’t ask WHY,

Which to ME, to me, to me bordersOnInflexibility, and I’M INFLEXIBLE TOO,

InManyRespects, but weAllGotta doWhatWeDo; So, if you’d like toContinueTo GetTogether, And read some of my poems, I DO NOT wish to cut “the tether,”

& I shall read & please know, I write what I do, AND, IF I START A POEM [THAT] YOU DON’T WANNA LISTEN TO, FOR ANY REASON, PLEASE LET ME KNOW,

And I’ll STOP and go on to another one so,

You will NOT have to listen to something you consider BAD,

Because I DON’T WISH to ever purposefully make you sad,

BUT “Life does bring sadness sometimes and, if I seem to, I’m sorry,

BUT THAT’S LIFE; It ain’t always a bed of roses; there’s some JOY & some STRIFE,

And, sure, I have anger, perhaps A LOT, but I don’t wanna take it out on you, (pause)

Or, maybe, GOOD FRIEND I really do,] And, if that’s the terrible situation,]

Please feel free to tell me, “Bye, Bye,” and go on vacation,

But that’s NOT what I WANNA DO, for vacations will end,

And you STILL HAVE TO DEAL COMING BACK TO YOUR FRIEND,

& obviously, we have differing points of view, ] Even about what a truly, good friend is there to do, ] AND THAT’S JUST FINE, Oh Friend of Mine, ]

For with friends AND ancient enemies I think we must be willing to dine. ]

Sometime(s), we might discover THAT EVERYONE MIGHT BE,

A friend &anEnemy, but I stillSee,] value in The Encounter, whetherWith smileOrScowl,

Whether with words of cursing, very fowl, Or whether with criticism, called fair, when I don’t think, That un requested criticism does anything but STINK,

And so I’d like to FORMALLY request all the criticism you’d like to give,

To this abusive, treacherous FRIEND, with whom you’re FORCED to live,

And I FORMALLY APOLOGIZE for whom and what I AM to THEE,

But I won’t apologize for, you know, BEING ME, A LATE &early PAINTER&POET,

A friend & an enemy, and you should know it, So, you can effectively protect yourself from the likes of “J,” Who is content with being MANY SHADES OF GRAY.

“A VIVID, LIVID MIND ENJOYING THE COMPANY OF A POETRYLESS HEART.”

“A VIVID, LIVID MIND ENJOYING THE COMPANY OF A POETRYLESS HEART.”

A poem for: November 2, 2019 (Saturday)

Having VIVID memories should be a WONDERFUL ADDITION,

To a person’s life, yet sometimes I am wishin’

That the memories, thoseOnesAlso ofTrauma LongAGO,

Might simply fade away in the air with some nice SNOW,

FLURRIES to obscure memories of CHRONIC SADNESS,

For vivid memory patterns tend to recreate The Badness,

Of SOMETHING that it might be better to forget,

SO, A VIVID MIND CAN BE A DOUBLE EDGED SWORD, you bet.

I like to kindOf imagine that we could RISE ABOVE,

All TOO VIVID memories of ALL TOO “conditional love,”

Of things that people DO (They SAY it’s done inORwith loving kindness), (p.)

But I rather think that CRITICAL OBSERVATIONS are offered with, at least,

SOME BLINDNESS,

That comes from people SEEING THE FAULTS THEY SEE in YOU,

And saying: “YOU BETTER STOP THAT,” &sayingTHAT (p.) is chronic too,

Perhaps, NOT RECOGNIZING (that) such traits are SO INGRAINED,

Within (their) “flesh&blood” that they have strongly named,

YOU. as “the dread antagonist in Their Life,” which shall include,

MANY PEOPLE with such traits, CALLED: “abusive,” “chronic” and “rude,”

The Moral: IF (S)HE NOTICES, assuming (s)he has some friends:

Is this. “IF a lot of your friends have similar character defects AND this observation of ‘yours’ never ends,

AND, if (s)he [or you] say[s]: ‘Thank goodness I am NOT one of THOSE,’

It MIGHT BE (that) (s)he’s [or you are] duplicating: The Rich (wo)Man in fine clothes,

Who, in The Synagogue, is praying in thanks to GOD,

For NOT BEING like the beggars, the ‘chronic’ beggars, whose attire is seldom ‘mod,’

Saying: ‘I’m SO GRATEFUL that I’m BLESSED to be MUCH better,

Than all these people who fail.’ I THINK THAT WE SHOULD LET HER,

HOLD A MIRROR UP AND SEE THE PRIDE THAT MAYBE FOAMS,

FROM LIPS OF CONDEMNATION & A HEART WHICH HAS NO POEMS.”
