Inside Out



Chubby-cheeked, tow-headed kid
Looking at a world chaotic
Monsters under the bed
Monsters in your head

Grown-up body, collegiate mind
Portraying something dignified
Mice gnawing at the door
Mice gnawing at your heart

Born an accident, kept distant
Pretending life worthwhile
Serpents in the basement
Serpents in your soul

Monsters out grew the hiding spot
Mice ate all the cheese
Serpents slithered away
Inside outside, implosion explosion

Damn cat out of the bag
Too many claws to stuff it back
