Mapping the World
Imagine the earth
illustrated in terms of the measurements
of blood surfacing from each country and region and area.
A geographical illustration of the shedding
of the spilling blood
as it mixes and merges and
increases in circumference
and then drips or more accurately perhaps pours
from each originating section of the surface of the planet
but then since the phenomenon and momentum of spinning is also taking place
well then the drops would be spun as well.
Imagine the bleeding globe heaving the web
of stunning and probably exquisite scarlet patterns and designs and trails and traces
which eventually and gradually and finally, we think, evaporates
in the presence of and/or within, who knows of course, a starry
starry starry starry starry starry
shadowed and brilliant by turn.
And then imagine a globe of the world
that illustrates the planet
in terms of the measurement of hope
generated from each country
and region and area of the earth
which of course is not a visible matter
but only a matter of imagination
and, so, difficult to picture
as it’s forms create unknown shapes and motions and colors and densities
so that each one is exquisite and possibly odd and wondrous and quite infectious
and the earth is bounteously and gorgeously flinging its hopeful imaginations
as it giddly circles and turns and circles
in the wild midst of kindred orbiting masses
blindly yet precisely whirling and whirling and whirling.
