ORDINARY ESCAPE
(7/4/18)

they talk
to Brother Bollocks
of mass
shootings

political
maneuvers

plane crashes

deaths
of celebrities

they seem
very upset

he cannot
share
their concern

Brother Bollocks
wonders more
abount crickets
in the hall

dust
upon the
dresser

dark matter
beneath
the fingernails

the gathering
of crowds

while
completely ignorant
of current
events

he smiles
a bit more
than his
peers

mostly
to himself
