ELEMENTAL MEANDERINGS
(8/9/14)


Brother Bollocks
spends his days
navigating
through the
high tech confusion
of this
Industrial Age
nightmare

an unwanted
apparition
that nevertheless
makes his life
a comfortable one

as it also
removes him
from any intended
basic nature
that he may
possess

he tries
to philosophically
strip away
these modern
conveniences

these modern
conveyances

in order
to experience
the bare ground
of existence
beneath
it all

Brother Bollocks
hates
all this mechanical
and electronic
clutter
that overwhelms
his senses

but what
would he be
without it?

he knows
that if he had
to revert
to hunting
and gathering
that he would have
never
survived this long

he has
succumbed
to the sickness
of technology

he looks
down
about him
to divine
the essence
of Earth

his place
upon it

but only sees
the dirt
beneath
his finger nails

he should
really
clean them
soon
