Origen of Alexandria, bewitched by sensory diversions.
St Augustine of Hippo, studying the synthesis of matter and form.
And yours truly, close to the ground, under an inarticulate sky,
unimpressed by metaphysics, banality my watchword.
Average only because sub-normality’s the norm.
A vagrant mind to the body’s squalor.
