Red Knight – RTMM

Alice becomes her own protector
wrapping herself in red silk,
red velvet, applying
red lipstick, standing back
admiring.

Red stones hang at her ears
and throat.

She is a drop of blood.

Alice sweeps through the world
like a fine blade,
cutting the air,
slicing through words,

red is a warning.

 

Riding that mushroom again.
