An Average Man


Dear  average man
greeting
how are you?
and who are you?

your income is average
you drive an average car
you eat an average lunch
you go to an average church
you live in an average town

your hope is average
your despair is average
you have an average inspiration
you have an average indignation
your joy is average
your boredom is average
you face is average
your happiness is average
your misery is average
your genital is average

yet you claim sincerely
you are more than average
better than average
different from average
you are unique
there is no one but you who are you
your birth was unique
your death will be unique
and you are being unique
being an average man
