Does this girl in the mirror
really blink, sleep, disappear when I
been staring at me for all these years, and I
am unresponsive, and she cries for help
in my black-butter sleep, from the Jaberwocky.
(who does come whiffling, lurking
slithy behind the mirror-frame.)
I have never
stepped into my wardrobe, looking for Narnia; I
will not tap on the third brick up
Behind a shabby pub.
i pray for nothing, 'cos
miracles are an ordinary occurance, but my dreams
Are all extraordinary.
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe,'
said the doormouse to the Cauldron Cake
before he ate it, and quite gave up on treacle.
And the girl in the mirror sinks down in her silver chair, in tears again.
A/N: In case you didn't notice...I 'borrowed' an entire verse of 'Jabberwocky,'
as well as several of Lewis Carrol's invented words/monsters from the same.
And, yes: I am a little bit insane.
