You travel a path on paper by Fanny Howe

You travel a path on paper


You travel a path on paper
and discover you are in a city
you only thought about before.


It's a Sunday marketplace. Parakeets and finches
are placed on the stones
and poppies in transparent wrapping.


How can you be where you never were?
And how did you find the way-with your mind
your only measure?


Fanny Howe
