The Woman in the Wall

There was a strange woman

who lived in our walls.

She was gloomy and dreary and not very tall.

When I told my mother

about the woman in the wall,

she gasped and shrieked

because there was no woman at all.

White Rabbit

My eyes blinked furiously

as my brain attempted to comprehend the bright presence.

I tried to speak in all tongues,

but I could only emit wails.

My nervous system jolted

as heat coursed through me.

I attempted to escape

the surge of physical spasms,

but I was confined to my form.


my worst fear,

I had been born.
