Poem - Queerest Tones

The poem “Queerest Tones” is about my shift from away from a heteronormative view of life. This means denoting or relating to a world view that promotes heterosexuality as the normal or preferred sexual orientation. I now seem to come from a place of queer normativity. The majority of people are viewed as being possibly somewhere on the LGBQTIA+ continuum. Am I correct? I think the answers depends on the group I’m associating with.


Queerest Tones

Consider the normative
aligned with the establishment
relating to standard ways
with behavior especially

this line of thought is shared by all
the flavors spun for the group
for a time the notion sticks
from society’s guiding hand

until exposure shifts the scene
new information trickling in
some measure must apply
prescription stating consequence

what may pass as usual
is not set on firm ground
now a world has opened up
to state the new obvious

what was straight is now bent
considered this at first glance
out of sync with the rest
comfort found nonetheless

looking at the normative
not the same as most folks
now behavior has a twist
the standard set to queerest tones.
