and curiouser

by eloisehendy

We fell down the rabbit hole
Each leading
The other
Tumbling through tunnels
Of black rot pupils, gaping
At the fall
Clock stopped
Time had looked away
But not forgotten

(Us neither
We had not forgotten
This place)

Buried
Under waters and
Under weeds and
Undergrowth
We dug ourselves
Down
We dug ourselves
In
We revelled
In the dirt
We forgot what it was
To be clean
We forgot what it was
To be free
Of this place
(This place
That consumed us
Long before)
(This place
We consumed)
Eat me
Drink me
Make me shrink
Suck on my marrow
And spit
Smile
And disappear
It is dark
Down
Here
Where we buried
Where we revelled
Where we pretended
To forget

I remember every curve
Of your lips
