Pull over

Tall, grey skinned, big head
Normality is my ignorance
Part desire, part need

I was exhaled by stars
Slip and slides?
I knew of nebulas
Solar crotch rockets
What we called them back then
“The glory years”

Who am I?
Where did I come from?

Don’t answer, just stare
Please make sure I’m as nervous as can be
Count to three...

I sit with Gods but plead with policemen
I promise you I’m normal

To be at odds with yourself
over whether or not you belong can give humans what I call “the furrow brow”
Laughing is my new habit

bad puns and all
it’s alienation
At the very least. I garnered some wit
Some class
A tempting of sorts

I sit by a meteor sent by a shower
Simulate kiss symbols and practice saying "I do"

I’ll never be like you
I’ll never be like any of you

I come from the stars
You come from lakes

Driving fast got me here
Then again
I’m not from these parts...

    If you don't feel alienated in some way, you're not living your life to the fullest. If feel in any that I have conformed, I break that so I am different again. An example of normal are bad movies that come out every week that are excepted. Normal is a sin in my eyes. Great write sir.
