NORMAL SOLITUDE
(3/13/14)


Brother Bollocks
is depressed

lonely

he seems
to have nothing
in common
with those
about him

they share
their addictions

their
recoveries

their
divorces

their
new marriages

their
soulless spirals

their
spiritual rebirths

Brother Bollocks
has lived
a simple
straight forward
existence
devoid of all
such deviances

he has nothing
in common
with the majority
of the populace

in a society
where shortcomings
are calling cards
for membership
he is left
without
an introduction

he closes
his door
each night
trying to imagine
a worse

more popular

version
of himself
