Bystander
(11/6/2021)


Brother Bollocks
realizes
that he has
accomplished
very little
in this life

he reaches
the sections
in applications
that request
awards

recognitions

achievements

and realizes
that he has
nothing
to enter

nothing even
remotely
to fabricate

he is
simply
still here
after all
of this
time

still here
waiting

for a clue

for a hint
of vocation

for a Divine
Proclamation
as to his
destiny

he has
acquired
no self
aspirations

no inner
motivations

Brother Bollocks
waits

watches

as Society
churns on
around him

wanting
to belong
but hesitant
to step into
the maelstrom

knowing
the sooner

rather than
later

that he would
surely yearn
to return
to the solitude

to the isolation

of his current
circumstance
