Welcome to the Age of The Beautiful Weirdos

this morning the lady across from

me in the waiting room asked me

if I was ready for things

to "get back to normal"


I smiled and shook my head


"I wasn't very good at normal," I told her.

"I'd like the give weird a bit of a try."


She blinked.

I blinked back.


things had gotten awkward

I always make things awkward


She blinked again.

I responded with another blink.


We were now communicating

through eyelash morse code.


So I blinked the following message to her:


I'm not waiting for things

to go back to normal


things are already

way too ordinary for me

to wish for it to have

any more of a hold over me


to be honest,

I'm waiting for things

to become more abnormal


normal had its time as the DJ

normal played the same songs over and over


typical's reign as the queen has gone on for so long

that her crown has begun to grow into her skin


I know you can sense it, too


this cocoon we are living in

is starting to quiver and our

skin is starting to turn into

polka-dotted butterfly wings


we are all unraveling

in the most beautiful ways


can't you feel it in your veins?


your plain blood is bleeding

itself into the sharpest pattern


of flowing plaid


you have shifted like a corvette

on an empty coastline highway at sunset


you can feel the hum deep

inside the transmission of your soul


your engine is growling with the

power of one billion angelic horses


you are now able to go from the natural

to the supernatural in under 3 seconds


you are racing toward your raw purpose

you are speeding toward your wild dream


you are no longer a bore - you are a blur


I know you can feel it, too

you are as sick as I am about pretending that

all we want is for things to be normal


normal had its age

let's give the unusual an epoch or two


this is the season

of change and


your eyes are turning

Into a sponge


soaking up

every beautiful

oddity you see


and every now and

then when your

eyes have absorbed

just enough peculiar

artwork of the divine


they begin to pour

with tears of joy


I know you can feel it

nothing is going back to the way things used to be


because our existence is a living

piece of clay being molded under

the loving hands of a cosmic potter


normal doesn't live

here anymore


it's been replaced

with the abjectly strange


and isn't that how it should be?


every day we should wake up ready

to journey into the irregular


this is the age for you

to finally embrace

the eccentric and exotic


which is perfect

because that is exactly what you are


eccentric & exotic


there is nothing like you

among the uncountable stars


you are the rarest precious gemstone


you know it

you can feel it


right under your scars

right behind your eyes

right inside of your heart


is a river of light

that has never existed before

you were created


you are abjectly and beautifully

abnormal


and that is why this age

is perfect for you


normal is out

atypical is in


and you are the loveliest

deviation from the norm

that has ever drawn a breath


and this is your time

and you are about to change the world

and I can't wait to watch
