you are the map :: danielle legros georges

by on August 16, 2015

There is the territory,
And there is the map,

There is the space between,
And there is you.

You are the map,
You are the territory,

You have arrived
At a portal of you.

Step through

You are yourself, also two,
A doubling, re-doubling,
Continuing company,
Communal: a truth.

You are an ocean
A vastness,
A changing-ever.

Here is your day,
Here a brightness,
A current
And current (of you).

Now is your time,
Prismatic, turned-
Forward, immutably
humming.

Step through.
