No Clue
(10/19/2021)


Brother Bollocks
understands
so very
little
of the life
about him

the motivations
of others
are obscure

they seem
to follow
a script
to which
he is not
privy

they have
marks
to make

lines
to recite

happy
in their roles
they pity
his non-
participation

Brother Bollocks
laments
that there are
no absolute
answers

only temporary
actions

chosen
minute
by minute
by those
living
this life

based
upon the best
information
that they have
at the time

and by choosing
mainly
not to act

to ignore
most advice

his rationalizations
must suffice

perplexing
his family

confusing
his friends

but he just
doesn’t do
what he feels
he doesn’t
have to
