The zoo inside my brain has opened and the animals are running loose.
The boa found his way to my heart and is wrapped around it firmly.
The gorilla sends vibrations through my head as he beats his chest so loudly.
I tell the alligator to keep my jaw clenched tight, for if he doesn’t I fear who I may bite.
And just when I think the whale will spout his tidal wave of tears.
They all decide to simmer down and suddenly disappear.
