Alice, Midway Through

it is very unsettling to be here she thought
but here I am without even a traveling case;
a writing desk one gets for Christmas, sometimes;

the kind you would hold in your lap
writing tinted postcards.
I do observe manners;it doesn't help

and the books keep falling off the shelves

in the wind tunnel.
stereoscopically speaking
there is a slight breeze in a toy forest.
this helps.

and clouds.

everything else is a jurisdiction, somehow
I will learn to live with these inconsistencies
and no one impressed with my spelling.

there are roses on the trees.
I will focus on that.
