new map

after the event the buildings were reduced to the sums of their whole,

pipes sprang leaks while

fires flamed 

telegraph poles bridged streets of

crushed cars


the town hall had moved 200metres south

the lake revealed its secrets

dust rain footsteps

new geography 

landscape of broken teeth

hard to pinpoint the past

overtime for the cartographers
