Out there, in here ... out there!

They say, “Put yourself out there!”

What’s out there is Fun Popularity. 
It’s bright and orange-colored, 
like a plastic hamburger. 

In here, there’s no walls or ceilings
(it’s not a community center, not the Oscars) 
but there’s a silvery blue velvet light
you can see no end of. 
Green mossy rocks underwater 
under feet 

No bullet points anywhere 
to be seen
or even checked off. 

You can control out there a little
in here, not at all. 

I was a baby and 
like all babies born wild, 
out of control. 

It’s too late to workshop the baby now.
