A Place to Start

02 October, 2009

If this were a Chinese poem.

Imaginary spiders drinking real tea.
Imaginary parrots drinking real milk.

A poem preferring maps to photographs.

This is not a diary, acrobat.
Stop looking for your name.

Someone thought this poem was a good idea.
Someone thought you were a good idea.

— Nicholas Laughlin
