Mapping this broken

whole parchment, garden
in faded brown ink the fields
hedgerows washed green

splash blue and gold
for finch-strewn sky
on the singed edges

of expectation, scratch
black or red for burning
smoke-gray shadow

creeping crossing the land
to cloud and bruise
and topple even castles

drawn in perspective
naïve, a blind future’s

I’ve been poring over this beautiful book of maps. I wanted to explore the idea of how one might map an inner life, but got this instead.

  1. Wonderful. I love looking at all kinds of maps, including those of the psyche terrain. So much in this one. “drawn in perspective / naive…”
    alone turns around in on itself, about us and our view of the world. Thanks.
