Superegocide
(4/10/2021)


Brother Bollocks
watches

waits

masturbates

seeing little
of value
beyond
himself

understanding
even less

knowing simply
that he doesn’t
belong

that he
makes himself
and others
uncomfortable
when he tries
to commune
with them

Brother Bollocks
chooses gladly
to remain
in self-exile

struggling through
an almost unbearable
singular existence
within this hostile
universe

devoid
of human
contact

comfort

commiseration

because he
does know

that whatever
remains
to sustain
him

must be
God’s grace
alone

and that this
solitary
path of suffering

is his
only
way
to salvation
