a map is more unreal than where you’ve been
or how you feel
and it’s impossible to tell
how important someone was
and what you might have missed out on
and how he might have changed it all
and how you might have changed it all for him

Feist, “Intuition”

'when i or else' by june jordan

when I or else when you
and I or we
deliberate I lose I
cannot choose if you if
we then near or where
unless I stand as loser
of that losing possibility
that something that I have
or always want more than much
more at
least to have as less and
yes directed by desire
