Beautiful Futility
(6/11/2021)


Brother Bollocks
understands
that no matter
what he says

no matter
what he does

that his
motions matter
so little

that
in a hundred years
they might as well
not happened
at all

that he
might as well
not happened
at all

depressing
realizations
surely

but at
times

sometimes
fleeting seconds
at best

Brother Bollocks
sees

he knows

what miracles
that we

that
this existence
truly are

that even
on universal

infinite
scales

we are
marvels

immortals
within our
limited
lifetimes

Brother Bollocks
reminds himself
of these things

and can
smile

slightly

as his actions
are obscured
by anonymity
