The days that follow (a poem)

Inspired by something a friend of mine posted this morning.

Every bit of normal
is an act of defiance
a vain effort to prove
that the nothing that mattered yesterday
will not matter today
and that the living that’s done
may somehow carry on
because this world we must now get used to
is an uncomfortable fit—
yet it still came at a price
