    normal

    a manner
    of formalized
    madness.
    Aim low, hit high. Surprise.

    like the insight and despair.
    a mad form of manner, indeed.

    This rings clear with a simple, yet precise message: Normality is a society-driven approximation.

    Good stuff.

    This short poem begs for more. What is the consequence of normalized madness? Is there even such a thing as normal? What if the words in the poem revolved like musical chairs:

    Madness

    a formalized
    manner
    of normal

    An interesting thought Tim

    What if in madness, manner was normal. Then normal becomes something really twisted into a kind of madness. Which seems to be Fat's intent.

    Madness

    a formalized
    manner
    as normal

    That's what I mean. You could just keep these words rolling around to different positions. They all spin a slightly different light on the original.

    Manner

    A normalized
    madness of
    formal.

    I agree with TL and RHPeat--y0u could keep spinning this around --play with them a bit and see if anything tickles your fancy Fat--there is a lot to play with in these few lines
