Josef K Through the Looking-Glass… a Lewis Carroll / Franz Kafka Mashup in 5 tweets…

Someone must have been telling lies about Alice K, for one morning the Queen of Hearts burst into her room, shouting, “Off with her head!”

The two men introduce themselves to him as Tweedledum and Tweedledee. “I am here to arrest you,” says one. “Likewise,” says the other.

The warped geometry of Looking-Glass Land is such that, the quicker he strides towards the Castle, the quicker it recedes into the distance.

As Alice awoke from uneasy dreams, she found herself transformed into a gigantic insect. Her mandibles jutted forlornly through the windows.

Franz Carroll looks at himself in the mirror, dreams of escaping its gilt frame.
