Strangebreak!: Alice and her hole

What they never tell you about Alice

And her hole

Is that she ran hard into every mirror possible

On purpose. To be alone.


And she said


I always want life before surprises …

I want to be ignorant before the moment of truth again

I want to have no hope

only to be restoked

resatisfied and reoverjoyed again


I don’t like the other side of the hill

the full-view from the top that has no shadows

no bends tricks or turns


I want to not know and then suddenly know

for the sky to beam and make my heart glow and then

all is revealed, just briefly

before I start the march again.


Back through shadow, running under sun.

Happily, marvelously
