Celebrating Uniqueness

Magnificent, the ______ of _______.
Each of us impressed by different acts,
different experiences, yet always impatient
to share our stories as salespeople, trying
desperately to gain recognition enough
to hear our listeners say “you’re right!”
or “wow!”. How deflating it is to tell
a great and personal story only to be met
with a blank stare, yet how predictable!
Why assume that any living soul would –
or should! – respond to life as any other might.
What perfect clones we would then become.
