"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don’t much care where--" said Alice.
"Then it doesn’t matter which way you go," said the Cat.
"--so long as I get SOMEWHERE," Alice added as an explanation.
"Oh, you’re sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."
(Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 6)


If eyes are meant to see,
Then why can I feel their presence?
They way they stick fast like Brambles to cotton sleeves
Irises of deadly color
Hypnotic green and icy blue
Looking right through me,
Seeing fear
Tasting sweat that drips
Down my neck
And pools in my palms-
Clammy.
I breathe but there's no air
I'm in a vacuum
I try to scream but no words come
My ears are blocked
No,
My mouth is.
The people keep moving
Just like they always have
Neither seeing, nor hearing,
All eyes forgotten,
Heads turned away.
They can leave
But I'll always be here
Just rotting away,
And the question remains.
Am I the only one who's real,
Or did I never exist at all?
