A Halloween Twist

Cast her as the big bad witch
And all you’ll surely see
Is cloak of black with pointy hat
With broomstick made from tree

You will think you’ll hear a cackle
Swear blind she owns a cat
That crosses in front of your path
To catch the nearest rat

And you’ll be certain that she has
A fiery cauldron too
Where tail of mouse and rat complete
All mix into the stew

Yet ‘neath perception’s bias
You’ll fail to see the rest
The truth or altitude view that so
Belies your thoughts at best

For there’s no cloak, no pointy hat
No broomstick or fire pit
No cackle, though perhaps a cat
But that is about it

As beneath these dark and blackened clothes
She wears as a disguise
Another her is maybe masked
To cover up her size

Or hide away from judgement and
The pointing finger that
Condemns those who don’t look the same
In the same boat they’re sat

And by your own distorted view
You fail to see the good
Less open eyes to observe her
The way she craves you would

And see the real girl; see her heart
Her story that unfolds
Instead of simple dreadfulness
Her beauty to behold!

So twist your mind; contort it to
Conceive another view
For there’s a multitude of ways
That she might see you too!

What’s Normal?

We’ve trimmed down what is normal
Taken out the quirks and whims
Reduced the bounds of typical
To make the standard slim
With a narrow, thin prescriptive
Of ordinary and sane
Determining what fits our camp
Not goes against the grain

And yet to you what’s normal
Will not be run of mill
To others whose experience
Does not fit your life’s bill
And so perhaps normality
Is then a state of mind
Where boundaries of what’s typical
Are really undefined

For what we see and judge are just
Perceptions; nothing more
Interpretations from once stance
That really wipe the floor
With anything that’s deemed normal
For in truth does that exist?
Or is normality in fact
More an abnormal twist?
