[poem] amazingly average, i’m sorry

Updated: Jan 5, 2018

sketching out the life story of an insignificant guy in an award winning book

i gather this is what a God must feel like

unassuming features, standard dialogue, an all around average person

there’s no time to waste on every character

you’re part of the plot, just a passerby

important to the tale but not important enough to think too much about

forgotten and cast aside, you hide in alleys and see scenes unfold

one after the other, every day

for the rest of your life as another toy in the grand scheme of things

alive but not really, no name was ever given

you’re you — just another average joe, maybe a plain jane

the pages flip, crawling towards The End

until a critic comes by and returns to chapter one again
