Out There – Written Friday 23rd April 2021 (Aged 46)

Out There

i have always –
been out there
doing my own things
whatever that is
and there always –
been someone inside
staring through a window
drying dishes
or counting dreams
swimming with the fishes
or sculpting their screams

i have always –
been out there
doing my own things
as someone changes the locks
and i feel like i am doing time
smashing building blocks
everyone else –
has carefully painted rooms
whistled over the cracks
and found an appropriate tune
