Double Espresso.


Like a famous TV character,

I went into the map.

I live there now, setting boundaries

and choosing my flying carpet

like other, more settled people choose their socks.

I'm doing digital magic

and being in more places at a time,

I know all the shortcuts and

if I get lost

there is always a night bus to somewhere.

One thing this magic map cannot do

is to show me where home really is.

Not a pin,

or a saved destination,

or a route in Uber.

But real, consistent, one-of-a-kind home.
