Suzie twisted a silver strand into the shape of a butterfly and attached to the white gold wedding ring her mother used to wear. With a pair of pliers Suzie pulled the metal thorns she wore in her brow, out, and buried them down the rabbit hole. The fat lady was rocking a chair on the wrap around veranda and watching Suzie through a Stations of the Cross window. Her stomach began to rumble and roar; Suzie covered the rabbit hole with Aladdin’s carpet and walked over to the window and lifted open and said to the fat lady: time to sing.

    I’ve the feeling this is by and by and the season changed in the previous century. I amuse myself and trumpet blowing is never favoured.

    I love that her stomach began to rumble and roar, makes it more intriguing in so many ways.
    And Aladdin’s carpet! I love how you slipped that in there – it colors the image so vividly.
    I do so enjoy your imaginative pieces xx
