Balance
(8/8/2021)


Brother Bollocks
spent decades
bouncing

from alcohol

to school

from alcohol

to work

from alcohol

to jail

from alcohol

to more
alcohol

finally
he quit
drinking

and worked

worked
to the exception
of all things

until
there was
nothing left
to work

Brother Bollocks
now believes

that somewhere
in between
the present pain
of living

the impending
despair
of death

lies the peace
of reality

the comfort
of truth

the meaning
in this
nothingness

God
