SUPERIOR INFERIORITY
(11/15/18)


I watch
them

on TV

on the
internet

in movies

the actors

the politicians

the financiers

the gangsters

the athletes

the spies

celebrities
as well as
operators
of every
variety

those
in the limelight

those
in the background

social stalwarts

undercover
cogs

all rushing
about

all doing
what needs
to be done

all making
me
possible

allowing me
to exist
upon this tenuous
bubble
of mediocrity

working
unknowingly
to support
my underachieving
nature

I am
the higher
life form

surviving
in the murky
middle

in conditions
that would bore
them
to death

I thrive
within this
mundane
anonymity

master
of none

pretender
of only
one
