Not Forgotten
(2/26/2021)


Brother Bollocks
had sobered

put his
life
into order

over
two decades
ago

but
for his
family

his friends

past acquaintances

certain institutional
entities

he was
still
a drunk

a liar

a cheat

a thief

only just
yesterday

but fortunately
Brother Bollocks
has recovered
his self-opinion

feeling good
about living life
on life's
terms

smiling
in solitude

until he
looks
into the mirror
of another's
eyes
