Normal Norman is a normal man,
the neighborly stranger greeting 
his fellow beings with a musical hello
and a handshake contacted by eyes,
but as a boy he was the one
who marked each day on the calendar
as the anniversary of his 
classmates’ assassination,
later he recreates his crescendo moment 
as a Twentysomething nobody trapped
within a geometrically imprisoning office,
alongside his co-prisoners shot with 
.22 caliber bullets from his thoughts,
but now as he’s displaced by middle age,
fantasizing of serial killing while
stalking milfs breastfeeding their infants
two-percent milk down the cereal aisle,
but everyone only knows him 
as Normal Norman,
or norm for short.
