For Daisy Yellow’s Creative Experiments #16, a page that began with a map. In this case, a map of the amazingly orderly street grid of the city where I grew up. I know some people who’ve never left and others who did but went back because other places “weren’t like Milwaukee”. I moved away over 25 years ago — I still like to go back to visit the people and the places, but all things considered I don’t regret the fact that I left. And of course that thought inspired (another) haiku.
