when i was a little 

kid

i wanted

x-ray glasses

and sea monkeys

but mostly 

x-ray glasses

 

i wanted to know 

what 

grown ups were thinking

what 

was going on in those

over-sized skulls

why

the long faces

why

the dead eyes

and

nothing nice to say

 

i thought

the glasses i bought

were 

broken cause all i saw 

was nothing

no matter what

angle

nothing but nothing

 

all grown up

now 

and i know

exactly 

what goes on in these over-sized

skulls 

and it’s nothing 

but

sea monkeys
