The mobile SMS or 140 character “chapter books” started a few years back & continue even today . . . the Japanese have a large library of “small” fictions online . . . and of course bloggers and “twits” R jumping on board . . . I posted a short fiction blurb a while back but . . . nothing . . . so here’s another . . . actually based on/off Carroll’s “Alice . . .” and what she found there.

DOWN the Hole . . .

She had peeped
at her sister’s book,
no pictures . . .

she was tired
and the damp grass
was getting her ass wet
and it was starting to itch . . .

it always happened . . .

And then she noticed
that the hole went
straight for a ways
then dipped down
suddenly . . .

and she
fell
like miles
down down
wondering what latitude
longitude . . .

straight through the earth
It seemed . . .

for so long
that she dozed . . .

until she landed
on a pile of leaves
and old rags . . .

She jumped to her feet . . .

she could see
that she was in a long hall
with so many doors
holding a key . . .
