I don’t get noticed, ordinarily.
Not because those with me cannot see,
But more because I’m fabulously average.
That unremarkableness is my leverage.
I do not have a following or crowd
and typically I’m just not very loud.
To be a leader isn’t what I need-
don’t really want that job, I must concede.
By definition – neither big nor little;
Average is just right there in the middle.
I’m fairly happy in my quiet place
where there’s no challenge to my poker face.
And I can think my quiet, average thoughts
and be my average self, near my flower pots.
