METRO MONK
(12/21/18)


Brother Bollocks
questions his choice
of city living
on a daily basis

the rush

the masses

the noise

are very
frustrating

very distracting

often
he thinks
that his spiritual
condition
would be
better served
in the desert

or on
a mountain
top

but he
knows
that these notions
are just
his weakness
speaking

his faith
under
attack

but
Brother Bollocks
knows
when there is
no doubt
of God's existence

that he
should be
far beyond
the realm
of belief

every day

faith
is such a
flimsy word
when considering
the absolute

God is

Brother Bollocks
will have
to find
the arid lands
in traffic

snowy peaks
within
the mob

total
silence
in the hopeless
human
cacophony

he will
have to work
just a bit
harder
today
