I wonder how long it took Alice to realise

that she was Wonderland & the rabbit was Time?

Only by dipping her uncensored madness into academia, like a ladle into a flood,

could she fit through the door of her insanity.

Now she carries a bachelors degree in Authenticity,

alongside a little map of non-directional science, dressed in a quirky hat.

Though she & countless others profess that her soul belongs behind a typewriter,

her spirit is too busy chasing nature to sit for that long.

The drought of habitats & common sense won’t dehydrate her

so long as she keeps sipping curious cups of tea
