gargleblaster: have all your clocks stopped?

alice and wonderland white rabbit

I’m late! I’m late! Her insides screamed,

as she kissed white rabbits hoping for white knights.

But the glass slipper never fit;

fairy godmother never appeared.

So she walks the plank toward midnight,

a punctual crocodile waiting beneath.

Tick tock. Tick tock.

  1. I like the overlay of the biological clock onto the croc from Peter Pan, starting and ending with the theme of transition to maturity. It tied the whole thing up in a neat little package of forgotten fairytale dreams.


  2. Layers upon layers – this is really incredible work. I’m just blown away by how much you packed in here. Thanks for gargleblasting, Gemma – I loved this.
