Jane, the Giant's Wife

by Nancy Bennett

Through the looking glass
awkwardly placed between too high for me
(I stand on a chair)
and too low for him
(he stoops and grumbles, dropping bits of bone from his pocket)
we see the little blonde-haired girl and the fat white rabbit.
A new watch for Jack I suppose, a rabbit stole for me
lined with golden hair
and wonderland stew again for supper.
