Please Don’t Disorder My Order

Don’t tell me I’m great,

            let me enjoy the pleasure of insanity,

of thinking I am a regular person.

            Let me be steeped in the craziness

that my daily activities are ordinary,

            that my thinking is commonplace.

I so enjoy this delusion

            of the average me,

with unexceptional lucidity

            and a soundness of mind.

Allow me my illusion,

            that I’m able to exhibit typicality,

normalcy, and good judgement.

Permit my delirium,

            lest the ennui

of the standard

            ruin me.
