Inclinations and allergies

Aesthetically intrigued, alphabetically inclined, numerically challenged
used to be real good at solving equations
but I’ve since lost all mathematical ability
lost it with my sense of regularity
Normality I am not familiar with
Animadversions berate me from all sides
like rain pelting in horizontally
no umbrella or vinyl coat keeps me dry
Luckily I have sharp wit, fake a smile, laugh
choke back the tears and if I can’t I say
Oh —I must have something in my eye
no one looks twice
Must be dust or sand or pollen
Mustn’t be the insults or snide remarks or sideways glances
Must just be an allergy
