The Reinvention of Normal

“We must learn to
live together as
brothers or
perish together
as fools.”

-Martin Luther King Jr.

Nuclear
family split like
atomic bombs- teachings the
outside world said
were
wrong got
louder
and
harder to
ignore.

Propaganda
corps
went the way
of
liars and
hypocrites,

thinking
themselves
poets
of
morality,

while our
sisters
fell
in love with
women
and
sons
transitioned
to
postponed
daughters.

I’m sure if
God were
to meet you
personally, he’d
admire
your
journey
more than

the misguided
morality of
mortal men.

Reinventing
normal is
only so
challenging when
you’ve created
circumstances

that
require
their
inevitable
reinvention.
