All Sinners
(10/30/2021)


Brother Bollocks
looks
at the calendar

Halloween

All Saints Day

they seem
to garner
the extremes

when most
of us
are in
the middle

where’s
our day?

with
no room
in between
the two?

maybe
October 30th?

November 2nd?

something
at least
in the vicinity
to give us
some recognition

an opportunity
to contemplate
our situations

Brother Bollocks
thinks probably
both dates
are needed

a double
holiday

plain bread
around
an unrealistic
sandwich

a day
to accept

another
to address

perhaps
to put us again
upon the right
path

for those
coming
family occasions

for a new
year

pre-emptive
resolutions

wrapped
within hopeful
decorative
paper

tied
in ribbons
of resignation
