Subtle- it reads as a narrator haunted by possibly abuse? The curiouser, cheshire grin, and rabbit hole refer to the Lewis/ Alice books, but from the phantom fingers like spiders onwards things get frightening and somewhat grotesque. I'm not certain of my reading of this, but it resonates. The phrases, like "fake poppies," "Phantom fingers (nice alliteration) . . . like spiders," "filthy moonlight," and "doll suspended by a hangman's noose" struck me as very vivid, haunting, and well written as well as backing my interpretation. Really well written.

This is a beautiful piece of work, it's haunting and right now it's suck in my head. A new favourite for sure.

Great great great poem! Love the images you get! Alice in wonderland right? "You could always paint the roses red" "What a terribly odd thing to say". Anyways, point being, great poem! Great Job!
