Day One.
Never a consideration.
He had a distaste
for the flash and the hype,
so he didn’t pay attention
as the round passed.

Day Two.
A fleeting fantasy.
Settling the issue in the top 50%
was a preposterous proposition.
Still, as the last few were selected
he began to fidget.

Day Three.
The consensus of his existence.
Everyone agreed on it,
so he accepted it as fact;
except, as the names were called,
his was not among them.

The Final Selection.
“Don’t worry, it’d be stupid not to pick you.”
They were stupid,
and he wondered why
until he found out
the scouting report read:

“All of the faculties,
none of the intangibles.”
