The wrong side

My skin is inside out.
I’ve got feet on my wrists
and bum holes for eyes.
I’ve got a cat called dog,
a cow called pig,
a bunny called Daffy.
My fingernails are liquid.
My kneecaps are swimming caps.
I’ve got pubes on my head.
The stars are freckles.
I’m sleeping on Mars.
I’m a fish with legs.
Last week
we swapped
sides of the bed.
