when nothing is familiar not even the colors of the flowers that tower – the caterpillar that casts spells is a complete stranger – you once slept with a tweetle dee but not a tweetle dumb – when your mind sits in a crowd of white rabbits all to itself & wonders how time betrayed it – so outside your body – so outside of smock & soul – & you can’t help but wave to it from across the portal – though it can’t see you in all its muffled sadness – the mad hat blows hearts to it – but his love is unrecognizable like the many dimensions crossing in your veins – like the path to a nonsensical nowhere – to a cat smiling moons in your saturnous eyes – beware: you will change at midnight
