Alice?
Is that you?
Your hair pierces through
The tar black
Surrounding me.

You're a little late…
Alice?
The blue in your dress
Flies in the wind.

Alice?
Are you leaving
Again,
Alice?

You’ve left so many
Somewheres
But you said you wouldn't.
Don't leave me, Alice?

 

You are my Alice…

Right?
Their Alice is not
My Alice,
My Alice believes me
Alice?

You know it's getting heavy, Alice
This heavy hat hurts me… Alice?
It’s making me
Fade……

Alice… I'm so tired…
I don't want you to leave…
The heavy…
Your dress…
Believe me…

Alice?
Is that you?
