Aerial View


She’s a mer
-maid who’s been swallowed
by the pinpoints of the map.

She’s un
-flapped by cranial tuna,
……..freeway flotsam
and jets
-aimed for better
but the traces of high
-way ink on her skin
are holding her down
like Gulliver’s Lilliputian

It’s enough
to make a cartographer

    Fun word list from my Shawna:
    belch, cartographer, cranial, tuna, aerial

  3. Ha – a cartographer belch! Undone by the highways… I’m sure many can relate to that. Love the thought of “cranial tuna.”

    This is my favorite section:
    “She’s un
    -flapped by cranial tuna,
    ……..freeway flotsam
    and jets
    -aimed for better

    I’m with you on these: “mere maid,” “cranial tuna,” “It’s enough.”
