the taste of joy

my tongue is
normal
it tastes
bitter
sweetly
salt

my eye is
normal
it sees
lightly
shaded
colour

my ear
my skin
my nose
all normal

banal

but there’s more
to me than
banality

inside me
is the inner me
that’s extraordinary

not normal light
but luminescent spirit

not normal sound
but celestial chimes

not normal
skin
nose
tongue

pure transcendence instead
just unadulterated otherworldliness

it lights me up
it loves me
it hugs me

it takes me away into the heart of itself
into a neverland
that’s real

it is forever

it’s joy.
