#NationalPoetryMonth Day 6: Inside Out

Day 6 of National Poetry Month brings an oddball poem…



Inside Out


Inside backwards

and roundabout

Up, down, all around, churning, spilling

breaking the brain box, falling out

never restrained

floating free

never me


Outside revolution

twisting twice

Broken says normal, all for free

slanting salutations, and come with me

hello morning

planned insanity

awfully nice


Upside climb

leading down

Threading the maze, meeting the clown

crackle your laughter, red nose smile

telltale whisper

shiny eyes

big surprise
