Bodies In The Road
(12/27/2021)


Brother Bollocks
drives

mainly
the small
state highways

keeping away
from the interstates

the expressways

the turnpikes

the people

he stays
the local
routes

occasionally passing
those inhabitants
in no hurry
to somewhere

he slows
for their
towns

imagining
living
in each

but knowing
that he remains
an anonymous
cipher

a passerby

a stranger

quickly
forgotten

belonging
nowhere

Brother Bollocks
keeps moving

his vehicle
his home

realizing
that his true
destinations
are never
stationary
