BBGWindow4“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”
Alice In Wonderland

The Windows (Pt.iii)

bbgwindow3“Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
Cheshire Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
Alice: I don’t much care where…
Cheshire Cat: Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.
Alice:…So long as I get somewhere.
Cheshire Cat: Oh, you’re sure to do that, if only you walk long enough.”
Alice In Wonderland

BBGWindow2“But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ Alice remarked.
‘Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the Cheshire Cat, ‘We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’
‘How do you know I’m mad?’ asked Alice.
‘You must be,’ said the Cheshire Cat, ‘or you wouldn’t have come here.”

BBGWindow1“I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night. Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?”
Alice In Wonderland

In Between



GardenStatue“[…]I’m overwhelmed again
like the time we parted

roadside grasses to uncover
wildflowers, astounded by names

as much as the way stamens
dusted our palms with pollen
as we bent to foxglove beardtongue,
trailing arbutus, rough

vines of cinquefoil.
That summer, the rip in your jeans,

the ink stains on your stockings
made me forget my name.
Sunlight, now, through spires.
Going home with the taste

of honey so sweet it numbs
the side of my tongue.

Baby, in the way you turned
to push further through hemlocks,
in the way light bent
to touch the soft

curve of your clavicle,
I’ve found something

I would kneel to
again and again.”

Stephen Cramer, Praise
