My Wonderland Rules (Revised)


Revealing little about her but more about my own
personality, my opinion of my sister contains dislike
of conflict and inconsistent behaviour; I easily feel
bullied and insecure, receive conflicting messages

Prefer a calm, self-assured leader to unpredictable
emotional persons, love routines while disruptions
serving no visible purpose cause great discomfort,
can’t abide a lack of sweet, gentle consideration

Our opinions reveal who we are and how we react
to the world and the people around us, but reveal
very little about the world as it is; some behaviour
I cannot accommodate stoically, though I would

Love to go through the world dealing with all
in the same way, keeping my distance without
disruption when life presents deep drama
and those around me join enthusiastically

Yet for me it’s a perfect background, enabling
my escape from this world into another reality
where I can be Le Petit Prince or Alice in Wonder-
land, not facing a sister who does not play

By my Wonderland rules…
