Cajun Mutt Press Featured Writer 03/01/21

Normal

I’m pretty sure
normal is a
made-up thing

It can be a backlash
on a fishing reel

Sometimes it is still
as water in a glass

It can be passing
knowledge of what
has died
that plants the seed
of a new start

It can be ashes
of the past
from the flames
that still burn

Reasons that vanish
and forget what
doesn’t matter
anymore

Sometimes it is
not tension
that is felt
but distance

Normal is not
wearing the fashion
or throwing away
your passion

Normal is not
becoming like one
of the sheep
