Invisible No More

my love affair with words

Clown Shoes

These clown shoes

 keep tripping me

Can I take them off now?

I can’t stand to be

 so clumsy

These clown shoes

keep tripping

me

Let me take them

off

I’m sick of

being your

stooge

I’m sick of

these shoes

too big for me to

ever fill

Let me take them

off

I can’t

 stand

tripping like

 this

Sideshow

I belong in a circus, in the sideshow

“Step right up! See the blue haired girl! Silent Patti from Detroit!

She never speaks! The only one in existence!”

I belong in there, not out here with you

The shiest girl with the hottest man

It doesn’t seem right. It doesn’t seem fair.

I belong in the freak show, standing next

to the two-headed goat

“Step right up! See the purple haired girl! Silent Patti from Detroit!

She never speaks! The only one in existence!”

That’s how I feel

I shouldn’t be here with you

I shouldn’t be anywhere, but locked away

in a cage at the sideshow

at the freak show

Where only the creeps want to hit on me

I belong in there

because that’s where I belong

“Step right up! See the green haired girl! Silent Patti from Detroit!

She never speaks! The only one in existence!”
