Brother Bollocks
doesn’t dwell
upon a woman’s
appearance

apparent
beauty

or lack
thereof

he’s old
enough now
to know
those things
don’t really
rate

don’t really
matter
that much

he focuses
instead
upon the minute
details
of her face

looking
for a temporary
welcoming twinkle
in the eyes

a spontaneous
slight smile
upon the
lips

when he
enters
her line
of sight

that’s all
there really
is

Brother Bollocks
doesn’t ask
for much

just
the illusion
of love

and
a good sense
of timing
