FOLDED AND MUTILATED
Sergio Ortiz

I am what is left
of his life
the black map
describing his voyage
of deep descent into himself

I am the map
of a wet dreary town…
exchanging
secrets in whispers
lilies bend beneath our bodies

you grasp my hand
steer it to a place
beyond maps…
I am scared of the shock of arrival
the raw landscape

if my life were a map
it would be one of a man
in the snow…

picking mushrooms
at the edge of dread
