Alice in Heels

I won’t even discourage you
from trying to turn me into
the little girl I was on the
day that you met me.

Because believe me, dear,
I’m not her anymore and
the more you try to make
me small to make yourself
feel taller the easier it is
for me to trip you up.

Being the biggest and the best
is better than anything else
until I slip through the cracks,
and by the time you wonder
where I’ve gone I will be well
on my way to the next tea party.
