Bright And Beautiful
(4/24/2021)


Brother Bollocks
stands in line
to renew
his driver’s
license

he watches

he listens

he wonders
how most
of these people
even found
their way
here

they seem
confused

distracted

the ones
not wearing
masks
have mouths
hanging open

hoping
to swallow
a clue
he guesses

he thinks
that this is
just the place
for a little
self-affirmation

he feels
a bit better
about himself
today

but then
Brother Bollocks
looks
behind him

realizing
that he still
the last

in this
less than
reputed
queue
