wonderland

that photo of us: keep it
in your wallet or a box
or maybe a file; don't
look at it often. it's a talisman
of something that was always
too large and when you're older
and happen upon it you may have
a reeling alice moment
finally knowing the mismatch
between what i gave and what
you could accept. but if only
you'd bitten, if only you'd taken
a deep draught just once
how you'd have grown!
