∙ꗴ∙ Alice doesn’t live here anymore ∙ꗴ∙

Alice found it nearly impossible to
overcome her addictions
to the assorted substances
imbibed while in Wonderland ~
they remained a constant craving

once she turned eighteen
Alice left her childhood home
and managed to find her way
back to Wonderland
at long last

taking up the cello,
Alice enjoyed sitting on a pedestal
stoned out of  her mind
playing to no one
{ occasionally the Cheshire Cat would sort-of  show up }

when asked what had become of  their daughter,
her parents could only reply
“Alice doesn’t live here anymore.”
