most found the other's maps unsettling.
They denied one's perspective
by charting the land incomprehensibly,
calling into question
one's very being.
Still, when they met on the lonely roads,
the explorers would present one another with their maps. Some seemed to say so plainly, directly,
the world is like *this*.
Others were more oblique;
skating, impressionistic, unstable.
They froze mere slivers of the infinite earth
as is skittered by in orbit.
If ever these maps could be gathered together,
they would comprise an atlas of unsettling vision.
A final proof
that truth is conjecture."
