Sardines


be so very

careful


when trying to fit

in


with everybody

else


because you just

might ~


stay fully wild,

star child


ride your watermelon

bike


wear your purple polka dot

pants


dream your dripping honeycomb

dreams ~


remain always untamed,

free spirit,


don’t give up what makes you

different


be the red

umbrella


be the horseshoe

nebula


be the dancing

fool


be the mismatched

socks


be the walking piece of rainbow shag

carpet ~


because because because


you weren’t plucked from

nothingness


to simply fit

in


you were created to make us

gasp ~


seduce us with your

strangeness


wear your authenticity like

lingerie


quit pretending to be so

khaki


while you are dripping in

watercolors ~


continue being weird my

beautiful weirdo


remember remember remember


fitting in is for

sardines
