Appearing at the
Entrance to the
Rabbit hole
I see her…
Dressed in
And sandals
She’s not
Ready for
The ball

But I’m not
Long on formality
I follow her
I take the fall
Slipping down
Behind her
Then beside her
I don’t mind
That she planned
This all along

How can anything
Go wrong at all
When all seems
So right, I ask…
But not all is
As it seems
As I hear a voice
Calling out…
Come now, Alice…
It’s only a dream

    Oh, I loved this! It’s a great answer to the prompt, and feels sinister without being overtly so.

      Thank you, Maggie. I guess that’s a bonus then, considering the suggestion of Alice of the rabbit hole.. 😉
