I am the White Rabbit.

I thought once I was Alice
Curious and full of wonderment
   Treading lightly in stocking feet
   Overly observant of door mice, tea parties, and hatters
   Blissfully naive -
   The world, my wonderland.

then,

   the rabbit hole
             wormholed.

And it seemed I traded in my mary janes
             for rabbit feet.
No time for stargazing or lollygagging
Now there's just no time.

No time! No time!

Pocket-watches be damned
   even Grandfather clocks mock my meager attempts
        digital tumblings towards temporary tomorrows
                digits daring, glaring
                daunting, taunting
     teasing us all
     daydreamers and poets
     to wake up!
