Alice on her adventure

Alice heads out
on her great adventure
with her hair tied back
and her boots laced tight,

she crawls under the
branches of the
her t-shirt, scratching
her shoulder,

and then slithers down
into the stream,
mud glazing her
left leg, boots
proof against
the water,

follows a butterfly
across the field
then stops
knee deep in buttercups
grass dusted

listens to a skylark

finds a hollow
in the hedge
at the top of the field,
settles in

eats two biscuits
drinks some water

waits for the sunset.

She’s never going back.

Alice again.
