Sunday Morning Worship
(5/23/2021)


Brother Bollocks
knows
that the day
doesn’t matter

that the time
of day
doesn’t matter

but still
he says
an extra prayer
or two

early
on the seventh
day

Brother Bollocks
recognizes
cultural programming
when he feels
the effect

but he relents
at times
for nostalgia’s
sake

because
after all
of these years

he still
wants
to belong

albeit
from a
distance
