lost magnets

in those villages
invisible,
under paper mâché canopies
in the expanse of this atlas,
the forgotten names
of the little people
missing in the narrative of a stuttering storyteller

the inhabitants,
the sailor the priest the butcher the thief , all had tiny machines inside that sparked into noisey life
and their compasses never pointed north
in a land of magnets everyone was lost
