Orthodox

Noses buried in textbooks

Butterflies in a jar

Clownfish stored in sea green tanks

To be admired from afar.

 

Bright red shoes in cartons

Rollerblades, tied up

Crayons, kept, neatly arranged

In a beige, spotless cup.

 

Feelings in metal cages

Thoughts, confined

All is to be mellow

All is to be refined.

 

All is to be correct, neat

Everything orthodox

And yet we tell ourselves

Think out of the box
