The Map

The failure of love might account for most of the suffering in the world.

 

The girl was going over her global studies homework

 

in the air where she drew the map with her finger

 

 

touching the Gobi desert,

 

the Plateau of Tiber in front of her,

 

 

and looking through her transparent map backwards

 

I did suddenly see,

 

how her left is my right, and for a moment I understood.
