HALL OF POETS POETRY OF THE WEEK


HALL OF POETS POETRY OF THE WEEK goes to "Alice, please, let me come too!", written by Karen Hayward.

Oh what beastly demon, biting jaws, catching claws 
and flaming eyes hunts upon my sanity. 

Alice, take me from this place. Together we can 
chase the white rabbit and catch the grains 
of yesterdays sand as he hollows into the hole
of his lateness.
Oh please,
Alice,
let me come along.
I shall bring a fan and some gloves and
the white rabbit will be so happy he will pause
and time will monetarily pass us by. Let us
together explore the depths of the endless drop
as reality spirals from us. 

Oh Alice,
please,
perhaps the caterpillar upon 
his branch can whisper to me the secrets 
of transformation and adaptation. Together
we can recite poetic glory from the pages of
greatness.
The smoke will engulf us as
it seeps into our skin.
Let him spite us
with his coldness
enlighten us with 
his wisdom.
Oh please,
Alice, 
I can eat
mushrooms and sit
tidily inside your apron. 

Please Alice,
for I am lost and I am hopeful. 
I must, I must, I really, really must converse
with Cheshire cat.
Let him hear my pleas
so he may guide me through the blade
enriched maze of life and his wisdom
open the locked corridors of my mind.
Let his eyes fall upon
me, Alice, and his grin bless my soul and 
lift this heavy cloud from my shoulders. 
We must find him
lest he disappears,
leaving
behind only the fading
whisper
of his
lips.

Alice,
wait please,
do not leave me in this dismal
world of harsh realities
and evil intent.
The Hatter,
will perhaps find an extra chair and together we 
drink tea sweetened with cubes of sugar
drank
alongside cake and cucumber sandwiches.
For The Hatter is not all he appears, 
he will chortle as he spits
venom from his lips
then quiver before his Queen.
Let me stay near
together we will sit at the
table of the hat maker,
and watch as mercury
rots his faculties.

Please,
Alice,
together we can defeat her.
Her that rules from her collective
court as she rampages
through the hearts and minds.
She has power
but we have love and kindness.
Her respect is
the favour of self importance,
ours is the journey
of seeing beyond.

Please,
Alice,
take me with you,
let me leave behind
the harshness of reality.
My soul is slowly dying
my spirit wanes in the tainted
fog of hate dispelled
about my legs.
My body is torn in two my mind ravaged, 
please,
let us find the white rabbit.
Together.
Take me 
from this reality.
