Default She said I wasn't normal


Is normal sitting in front of the mirror
for three hours painting that cock ravaged face?

Gucci sliders which you all can’t afford?
auto-tune is normal
socks and sandals
when the group decides
Kappa was normal — then it wasn’t
now it is again

Hive mind is God
normal God who
is like us of course
why would the creator
of the universe be
anything different?

Normal hubris

Normal is ketamine,
maybe heroin in the 70’s
maybe crack in the 80’s

deep fried meat and cancer?
adjusting to military protocol?
oh these rituals
oh these traditions
marriage
picket fence
pumpkin pie

it is hierarchy for sure — normal is everything ancient
branded into our genes like the hide of cattle

we all want to be high status
normal is that wish
and then our behaviour
is tending towards whatever displays might
indicate a quality status to others and we live for their approval —
some collective nod from strangers that we’re accepted
in some echelon which might be considered desirable, collectively.

So then which group do you worship? — that you might
get their stamp of approval confirming your display is
normal
acceptable,
desirable —
the high groups?

the Gucci slider gang?
Diamonds! Diamonds! Diamonds!

or the broken lot?

those too busy staring at the moon, and this strange earth,
who view this fascination with Gucci sliders the same way
Incas saw the Spanish obsession with silver? Weird!

Yeah, the Spanish wanted gold.

Or maybe that’s revisionist.

They mined a hell of a lot of silver -- silver mined in south America became the dominant tender for the Spanish empire. But yeah of course they took the gold too.

Less is more:

Gucci sliders you can't afford

Branded into our genes like cattle

Unless you're Michael Aday, don't jam too much in. Lovely use of enjamment though. Haha, see what I did there?

There's a bunch of stuff I could trim out of this. It's an unedited stream of consciousness for good or ill -- whatever was in my head at the time. So it goes into the free writing bit.
