Ground

I tried to pass through the looking glass
and busted my nose.

I think I'm stuck here.
Don't think I belong here.

The clouds are cramping down
too heavy, too close.

There's no sky at all.
Nowhere to fall.

I'm flat on the ground.

For Open Link Monday at Real Toads

I love the idea of a latter day Alice busting her nose on the looking glass - and I am having one of those flat on my back on the floor of reality days myself.

As Mick said to Rocky, it's an improvement! :-P

Only you would think of Alice busting her nose on the looking glass. Brilliant!

Grandmother (Mary) said...

I know days like that!

Gail said...

I laughed out loud! I've had these days. A delightful way to look at misfortune.

Laura said...

Somedays sure do feel that way.

Here in the PNW, the clouds are definitely cramping down on us.

Susan said...

Yikes! I could handle the broken nose and fall--but no sky? Worse than being grounded!

Clowns to the left of me, Alice to the right, here I am, stuck in the middle with you. Move over.

Marion said...

Nowhere to look but up now. Another super-duper winner, MZ. xo

Buddah Moskowitz said...

You and your casual brilliance. Thanks.

Marian said...

Some days can be most unfair. Life's like that! Great lines MZ!

got a kind of mind-meld of the witch beneath Dorothy's house, and Alice, and how, maybe, there's always another side to the glass, and the story ~
