no body had a map

no body had a map

they asked if we could lead the way
only to the best part of the city
where the homes are lost in door ways
and hens stagger about to concern themselves with certain future

They asked if would help
where to buy the best map

what map



The city
which city do you live in the man asks on the bus
not that one
he didnt know that place either

we sat in silence

going back to our city
leaving them to theirs and their new map

map me city do

map me city do

there was a pause as we drew in..

i was home
