Alice as a Universe

one side will make you small
one side will make you tall
so tall so thin you will
slip

vertically into her
imagination

spending your shares of curiosity
a question at a time
and holding all the answers in your mouth
like mushroom smoke


The springboard is the Monday Quadrille from Dverse (where I am always a day behind due to time zone). Curious means curioser to me, means Alice means Go Ask Alice.

Just say no 😉

    Safe to say, some answers might not be worth knowing especially if it comes with mushroom smoke. 😉 Love how you encapsulate the craziness. Beautifully written!
