#QuemPensa é Spiralist: “Protagonists of the Ordinary”

#QuemPensa é Spiralist: “Protagonists of the Ordinary”

One collective consciousness with distinct voices shouting out.


Dawn. The towns awaken.

Nine to fivers fighting off the migraines from yesterday’s workload

One of many enemies to come

In the seemingly unremarkable quotidian odyssey

 

Their stage is small and narrow

Their audience is limited and familiar

They go about dreaming of things they’ll never reach for

Or seeking entertainment to tune away from their realities

 

One fragmented hive mind battling itself
One collective consciousness with distinct voices shouting out

 

How can we say their lives are not extraordinary

When their POVs are all they’ll ever know?

You want something truly extraordinary about them?

           The mere fact they carry on living
           With more honor and dignity than many of their superiors.
