Mapping the Imagination

It sounded so cool, coming from the master wordsmith there on the cover of "Poets and Writers". didn't he look like he knew? White hair and beard, impeccable, black turtleneck, coarse cloth overcoat, turned out, casual and desciplined. More like mapping the magi or apping the magus. Maybe lassoing the ocean. Ma, put the pin in Gina. Look for the ion in nation. Start small yet the boundaries are so...like an obsessive killer getting rid of fingerprints, it never ends. I want to be like Mike! Casual discipline, throwing out the red herrings with the bath water. It is after all a wash and pretty soiled to boot, and reboot. My god, I've only gone from left to right on this mapping thing. Dare I go from right to left? Damn! I give up. You have a thirty year headstart. I'll just have to draw my own darn maps.
