Alice

An Alice picture by Salvador Dali

 

 

I’ll make a note of that

I think to myself and my pen

immediately becoming distracted

by tantalising glimpses of other lives

a little out of reach

forever running parallel

and beyond that another

and another and another and another

an endless me

living countless lives

over and over and over

all slightly different

from the neighbouring one

and the me that neighbours that

I wonder if Alice knew the theory

of parallel universes

or perhaps she was obsessed with string
