Unaccepted Normality by Dan Abernathy

Unaccepted Normality

On her back she lays,
legs wide open
and the sperm of man
oozing from her womb.
She knows this is
unaccepted normality,
but it gives her the attention
that she so desperately commands.

Each giving,
each forfeit,
each ejaculation,
secures an orgasm that she is pursuing,
but not receiving.
It gives her the attention
that she so desperately commands.

A minute reprieve
from the hurt and abuse
that was once inflicted,
she now repeatedly inflicts on herself.
The abuse has become
a counterfeit escape for her,
a confused way out.
It gives her the attention
that she so desperately commands.

She cannot forget,
as she tries to remember,
as she was looking for her guidelines,
this is what was required,
to get the attention
from those who put her down.
It gave her the attention
that she so desperately commands,
and placed her into a life,
of unaccepted normality.

Dan AbernathyDan Abernathy. Welcome to the chaotic and often strange life of a Quasi, Clumsy Spiritual Warrior, Dan Abernathy. This Renaissance man is known as an outlaw poet, artist and purveyor of words, a junkyard philosopher, and a vagabond searching for a pure hedonistic meaning for his of life.

His voice, be it in his words or in his art, is a collection of oddities, fascinations, desires and obsessions – a road map of sorts, tracking the life of a man that can’t and won’t fit in.

“His poems are a bit like a well fingered bowl of mixed treats in a dark bar – filled with some salty Charles Bukowski, some chewy Hunter S. Thompson, and a little zap-a-hooty sweetness ala Dr. Seuss (tossed in just for the kiddies…er, ah, not that I’d recommend this one for any mother’s son.”David Vaughan, an artist, writer from the Pacific Northwest coast.

Abernathy makes available 98% of all his perspectives, be they fluid and random thoughts, or meandering and incomplete rants to the masses. They other 2% he keeps to himself, archived and a gift for the scholars and naysayers to decipher. Abernathy has published two books of poetry, Looking For Security While Wearing a Loincloth and I Don’t Shave on Sundays. He is also the Editor/Publisher of The Contributor, a monthly newspaper of free speech, art, travel, the spoken word and other oddities that should be revealed.
