Weightless
(3/19/2021)


Brother Bollocks
has always
been fascinated
by space

but
not physically

mentally

or motivationally
capable
of putting himself
there

he settled
for books

movies
about the
topic

fantasy
adventures
instead of
the real
kind

feeling
as if
on a one man
mission

detached
from people

from social
concerns

travelling
through time
in a capsule
of worldly
apathy

most days
Brother Bollocks
feels
light years away
from the life
around him

viewing
his surroundings
through that
opposite end
telescope
effect

many distances
away
from the
everyday

floating
through existence

both at rest
and in motion

eyes
ever-focused
onward

untethered
from the blur
of here

now
