Normal

Tomorrow
normal will return.
You know this
because you and normal
have a history
of playing hide and seek.
Normal hides
and you try to find it.
Sometimes
you’re the one hiding—
you’re seeking something
a little more exotic
or strange,
but those things aren’t
as curious about you.
So you go to bed
unsatisfied—
your rejected heart
keeping score.
But in the morning,
there it is—
normal.
And it never felt so good
to be found.
