Blue Collar
(4/17/2021)


as a child
Brother Bollocks
had dreams

fame

wealth

romance

but as
he became
an adult

reality
crept in

his limitations
realized

his sights
readjusted

the world
needed
workers

full
frontal lobe
failures

solitary
drones

Brother Bollocks
accepts
his place

almost
appreciating
the provided
purpose

the silent
anonymity

the peace
of isolation

every once
in awhile
he’ll read about
a successful

rich

loved

character
in a novel

and realize

how truly
miserable

that must
be
