Tick No Tock
(4/1/2021)


Brother Bollocks
marvels
at the abstract
concept
that we have
created to mark
our succession
of nows

a quantity
to be filled
with quality

and
vice versa

as if
a savings
bank

funds
to be withdrawn
at a later
date

but those
moments lived
are gone

worth only
the nothing
they have
become

Brother Bollocks
has no past

savoring
each
exhalation

not expecting
another breath
