Dogs 2021

Saturday Stroll
(6/19/2021)


Brother Bollocks
walks
the streets

they seem
his only
element

the action
his only
vocation

he passes
through
neighborhoods

sees
other men
in their
yards

busy with
chores

projects

possessing
the equipment

the tools
to perform
them

cell phones

pot bellies

ball caps

they look
a strange
race

but they
look
like each
other

Brother Bollocks
is obviously
the alien
here

the
interloper

their only
commonality
beating the heat
early
on a June
day

he offers
embarrassed
waves

nods

with nothing
better to do
than amble
onward

toward
less populated
areas
