Impotent Supplications
(9/26/2021)


Brother Bollocks
still prays
upon occasion

giving
thanks

the reflection
of age
seeing him
quite beyond
the usual
selfish

or even
the selfless
requests

asking anything
of The Divine
seems to defile
the gifts
that we
have been
given

"Thank You"
he says

repetitively

knowing
that gratitude
is the only
thing
that should
be given

and still
our thanksgiving
can never
be
enough
