Alice And The Spooks

Rating: 3.7

Little girls in little blonde curls
In reddish frilly messes
Eat their lunch alone,
Served by brunette waitresses
The eyes the color of
Burnishes doors,
Their thoughts slipping from their dresses.

A six year old Alice
Finishes her chicken and waffles,

She goes outside, screams,

They just killed all the gods in the sky, So the heavens lay like breathless still-life— Like the black apple and the brown pear They made her finger-paint in art class; A beautiful write that deserved being POD. Thanks poet and congrats.

This says more than perhaps the words convey. I too spotted the internal rhyme, it did enhance the impact. I don't suppose you tried to go to Amamzon.com for the book. Whatever that book is about, at least I do hope he knew enough to hire a proof-reader. Adeline

Yes sir, little Alice finally found her champion. I really am amazed by your tremendous level of skill and mastery. You bring a lot of what is certainly true along with this picture of Alice's world. It helps to turn the pot over and let it all run out no matter what....... Very remarkable painting......... Thanks for it.. Jim Troy

This is evil, love it! It reminds me of Kathy Acker's novella 'Blood and Guts in Highschool'
