Brother Bollocks
avoids
any unnecessary
direct
human contact

he communicates
mainly
by reading

by writing

intercourse
at distance

but
of course
without
speech

without
touch

meanings
are lost

priorities
are misplaced

and he
forfeits
all true participation
within
this peopled
planet

Brother Bollocks
understands
the words
that he uses

but he doesn’t
always know
how
to pronounce
them
