Preventative Measures
(4/23/2021)


Brother Bollocks
doesn’t mind
the virus

always
a proponent
of protecting
his space

practicing
extreme
sanitary behavior

maintaining
an asocial
amount
of anonymity

the new
COVID world
suits him
just fine

Brother Bollocks
dreads the time
when an unmasked
human

no longer
hygienically
constrained

their face
to his

says
his name
in a public
place

forcing him

once
again

into self
imposed
exile
