August is a good time to put aside some of our serious map-making dogma in favor of lighter material. To that end, why not head over to poetrykit.org to read some of Jim Bennett’s “the cartographer” poems? You’ll read such gems as:

to show his great skill to his visitors; the cartographer; shaved his dog. . .

and

. . . the gentle eyelash an isthmus

Don’t just read these two excerpts. You really must read all the poems and enjoy a good laugh this Wednesday afternoon.
