Alice and the angry chipmunk

Alice and her chipmunk poem by steven james humphreys

Alice held her bunny

behind the garage

close to her heart.

‘water your plants’,

she said.

and when I did they started

dancing in their hanging pots

in a sunny garden mirage.


I wondered why the shadow boxing

chipmunk wanted a punch-out fight

daring me

to knock it off

her shoulder

later this evening.

I declined the invitation,

shook its hand

and kissed its furry

little forehead…

and said,

‘all that matters

in life is love, see you


my dreams

my dear

friend. Then, I asked

Alice to join me

in dreamland

tonight with

brown bunny.

she nodded
