like a map folded against its creases

from Uh Oh Dear by Ilima Considine

/

lyrics

the makeup was as smooth and opaque as the painted face of a porcelain doll
and I was attracted, not by this
but by the contest of glittering blue eyes, winking and alive
she stood behind the counter on a platform
or perhaps she was that much taller than I
who was reminded, when I opened the book in the public library
like to life as if you had written it
finding a piece of paper, yellow, hand-written script
"the space felt all wrong like a map folded against its creases"
reminded how, I am still sweet on you
