We're all mad here!! :^)

Cheshire Had a Point

we collect bits of sanity
stuff them in a jar
and wave them round for show

normalcy on display -
we're normal

we collect hurts
and hide them in our sleeves
swallowing grief alive

normalcy cannot feel the pain -
we're normal

we collect our rolling marbles
and put 'em in a pouch
(they don't exist)

normalcy -
it's normal.

LOVE this one. But, er, I keep my sanity in a pouch and my marbles in a jar... Am I normal?

you have a fun take on life, maybe it's that sweet little girl in your arms. your poems are just off-center enough to keep me smiling (being a little off-center myself. though normal. oh yeah, quite normal).

Interesting premise,(as usual)
If I may"Normal is where Normal is"
You always make me think--and it hurts1

heheh... yep, normalcy is an interesting ideal - I haven't reached it yet, I don't think ;) How about you? :) I keep thinking normal is boring somehow but what would I know. Got my mind going on the theme now...
