Metered Poetry

Were These Normal Things?

Were these normal things to hear?
These affirmations.
These dotings.
These confirmations.

Were these normal things to feel?
These securities.
These stabilities.
These sureties.

Were these normal things to see?
These graces.
These pleasantries.
These smiling faces.

Were these normal things to taste?
These possibilities.
These openings.
These infallibilities.

We do not hear, we are deaf.
We do not feel, we are dumb.
We do not see, we are blind.
We do not taste, we are numb.

Why is there normalcy for others?
And deficit for some?

Where is prosperity for beggars?
When will normalcy be undone?
