she was a girl.

she ran with the moon,
chased fireflies in the bluegrass, and
watched the reflection of sunsets in rain puddles.


                        her name was Alice,
                        and she was a girl.


--

but to the dragonflies she was a queen,
and to the mirror she was a sister.
the moon was her prince, and the
blinking windows were the eyes
that kept her safe.

she spent her nights making wishes, and she
dragged her fingers along the shooting stars
that were tangled with her vertebrae.


                        her name was Alice,
                        and she was a girl.


--

her body was a river
her mind was an ocean
and her heart was the sky.

she lived in a world where
doves flew in the sea and
whales swam in the moonlight,
and in a universe where
raindrops fell like bombs
and stars fell like gumdrops.

her body was a shadow
her mind was a fire
and her heart was a star—

she was a super nova, and
nothing could hold her back.


                        her name was Alice,
                        and she was a girl.


--

"if you see the Water-Bearer
drift from the Sea,
then you will die in the ocean."

"if you see Little Horse
shine as bright as the sun,
you will die by the hand
of Poseidon's trident."


--

Alice believed in constellations,
and was convinced that
they could predict the future.

"They say i will die at an age
as old as the mountains—
with stardust on my eyelids,
a world in my hands,
and heaven on my mind."


but even in the vastness of the constellations
there was not a single star that could predict
death by a woven rope
and a kitchen knife.


                        her name was Alice,
                        and she was a girl.


--

maybe she read the stars the wrong way
or maybe there were too many clouds in the sky,
because now this grey shadow
—once a girl named Alice—
sleeps for eternity at the bottom
of the Eridanus River.

--

she was a girl,

and she died when she was seven
with dirt on her eyelids,
a bloody teddy in her hands,
and her murderer on her mind.


--





                        her name was Alice,
                        and she was a child.

her name was kristyanna, and she was murdered.
she had an older sister who was with her at the time of the incident, and she is paralyzed for life.
