Denied On The Material Plane
(3/6/2021)


Brother Bollocks
now realizes
that a lifetime
of worldly
self-rejection
is finally
becoming
an advantage

there is
so little
to be left
behind

few possessions

fewer attachments

no accomplishments

no known
progeny

he will
return
to this earth
as anonymous
ashen
waste

Brother Bollocks
prays each day
to be forgotten
before
his death

to be scattered
finally
by unfamiliar
hands

in disgusted
silence
