In the Neverland of Oz


I had lost the entirety 
of my muchness
I watched a white rabbit 
dart in my peripheral 
as walkabout found my feet, 
the Red Queen laughs raucously
dangling me at the end of a Scepter


Tweedle Dee and Tweedle dum
know I am not Alice,
and that this is not my home


Arnhem calls to me
as the earth trembles
I feel the beating spirit
through the bush, 
and it tempts me with magic 
flowing from the Dreamtime


so I wait 
stroking the rainbow serpent
but ever watchful
of escape to a place
my heartbeats home 

in the land of Never and Oz
