Allow me to explain:
Living is ordinary and
Extraordinary at the same time.
Neither of these judgments
About living are reason for fear or
Dread or crushing push.
The ordinary may be common-place,
But it is not to be taken for granted.
It is only considered by me (or by you)
To be ordinary, because it is habit
Not because the impetus behind it
Failed to meet criteria of creativity,
Imagination or deep concern.
Yes. Something as typical as folding
A sock and setting it with its mate
Is extraordinary in its blissful care
For the threads contained and the
Flesh-and-bone foot that will —
Any moment now — reside
Within its comforting confines.
