Though traversible, I am
A war-torn shard of a map
Showing only one side of a half

[the legible half]

Yet you know every landmark by heart
& instinctively, what will tear me



See, your initials are scrawled
neatly on the back & your wax seal
Still remains in the corner


Evidence of your presence is ubiquitous
& my canvas too fragile to change hands

My treasure is lost in fragments
