All Too Normal by Jasmine Mans

All too normal
how we let our boys go,

and try to find them
after they’re gone,

and the longing.
All too normal
the tremor of longing

and how it fits
uncomfortably

in our everythings
everywhere

All too normal
how we don’t know

What we…
…until its…

And the skin,
the skin
they be wearing

all too normal
how it stays perfect

for the morning,
and mourning after.
