Sister nothing

Sister nothing,
the book is Alice
considering her own
daisy-chain trouble

the waistcoat-pocket world found suddenly,
a moment falling,
the deep, slowly coming dark.

maps and pictures, pegs,
orange disappointment,
jar of killing somebody,
cupboards of tumbling down stairs,
earth, Longitude, Latitude.

Words to fall through,
fancy air.
Think girl, never ask.

I see it written.
an erasure poem, taken from the first page of Alice in Wonderland
