the map is not the territory


being there
isn’t the same
as thinking about
being there
it’s hot
and most times you’re not
entirely sure
what’ll happen next.
your vocabulary is limited
to simple things
and it seems everything
takes forever.
some moments
you feel you may actually
from worry
but when you’re back home
idly tapping
your desk at work
on a stuffy afternoon
you’ll wish you were
anywhere but
