Mapless in London, by Britta Benson

Just a silly wee poem today, about walking through London and life without a map. Enjoy!





Mapless in London





Not even Google

watches over me

as I venture out

of my comfort zone.

The beauty

of going mapless

in London and life,

lies in the certainty

that I will get lost

in due course.

It might take a while,

but sooner or later,

there’ll be consequences.

There are two

possible outcomes.

One.

I’ll end up somewhere

phenomenally nice,

unexpected, interesting.

Two.

I’ll end up somewhere

phenomenally hideous,

unexpected, interesting.

There is always time

for a detour.

There is always time

for life.
