A ROAD UNREGRETTED
(10/14/15)


Brother Bollocks
looks
down
the trail
he has trodden

in one sense
it has led him
to objective
failure

in another
it has led him
to the subjective
freedom
that he desired
from worldly
concerns

he cannot
unwalk
his path

he is exactly
where
he has chosen
to be

the time
is too late
to begin pretending
that he cares
about social
structures

the reality
is simply a matter
of whether or not
he accepts his
life trending
decisions

accepts
his looming
destination

Brother Bollocks
knows
that he will
die alone
in his idyllic
metaphysical
existence

but then
really
so does everyone
else

they just
don't happen
to see it
that way
