The Who of Zoo

What
When Why How
Who

Who?
You?

Take your head out of
your neck
Place it on top of the Antelope
and now you have a
Dance
and grounding

Take your head out of
your stomach
Place it on the back of the
Tiger and now you have
Voice
and a pack to run with

Take your head out of
your throat
Place it on the Toad,
yes the Toad,
and now you can
Flex
and have a good sense
of adaptability

Take your head out of
your neck
out of your stomach
out of your throat
out of your toes
out of your wounded,
impassioned heart
out of your stodgy,
emotionally centered,
self aware,
freak-out
Place on the head
of you
the new you
the new unicorn
the now you
and now you
have
Freedom
and a new way to imagine

Because what is
the Care
and the Fear
if it
is
Drowning
you

Take
You
Out
of
The Simpleton Zoo

Show
me
now
not tomorrow
not give-me-another-day
not more time
now
Show me
Now

A
simple,
cacophonous,
hilarious,
magnificently stripped,
embarrassingly striped,
ridiculously
uncool
cool
Zoo
of
You
