Empty Anger
(6/4/2021)


Brother Bollocks
has no reason
for the angst
that he suffers
on a regular
basis

his life
is fairly
easy

mostly
painless

yet
his soul
bemoans
a lack
of purpose

a dearth
of meaning

his surface
apathy belying
the continual
turmoil
beneath

he hates
the world

his place
within it

existing
in opposition
to everything
that he senses
as society

Brother Bollocks
should be living
in misery
due
to these many
conflicts

but in this
rejection
of all things
human

he finds
God

so
with fists
clenched
he walks
through this world
purposely

without
purpose

enlightened
in the knowledge
that his path
is pointless

that
a celestial machinery
churns on

his inconsequential
gear
included

in ways
that he’ll never
understand
