Socratic Sunrise
(11/26/2021)


Brother Bollocks
watches
the sun
come up

well

actually

he watches
the sunlight

filtered
by breezed
almost leafless
tree branches

streaming
through
the venetian
blinds

slanted
and partially
eclipsed

projecting
dancing patterns
upon a bare wall
of his apartment

thus
he perceives
daybreak

as he
inhabits
his limited
environment
of solitude

Brother Bollocks
may not leave
his diminutive
dwelling
today

but he
will monitor
the world
in his way

leaning
with the Earth
toward winter
