A Cup Of Coffee
(10/11/2021)


Brother Bollocks
doesn’t need
much

some
solitude

some
silence

a chance
to stare blankly
into the limited
amount of space
allotted
to him

as he
considers
the assets

the atrocities
of this existence

while
well-meaners
encourage him
to get out
there

to be
active

but his
contemplation
defeats
most standard
actions

Brother Bollocks
has attained
a mindset
that submits
to little
compromise

expending
lessening energy
upon wasted
efforts

with death
so much closer
each successive
day

he sips

he gulps

hoping
that the
heat

the bitterness

of this
life

still bite
through
those social
insensibilities
