Fear In A Handful of Cookie Crumbs

I watch Sesame Street
My eyes take in all the happy monsters
Elmo squeals, Cookie gobbles
And Grover does his little, goofy dance
A blur of blues and reds and yellows
Scintillating harmlessly on the screen

Monsters, they're called
But I know better

I know that monsters really look like us
Exactly like us
I know that monsters aren't happy
Unless we're not
And that the only color that monsters really know is red

And I know

That a monster
Is the reason
I watch Sesame Street alone
