Interlinear Map of an Imaginary Minneapolis

America, then.

Or a piece of it.

Or a map
of a piece of it.

An imaginary map
or a map made up
to tell you about something
that was true at one time
for one person
as they were imagining
that piece.

A Russian choir
and then a saxophone,
separate but afterwards.

Men singing
and a man playing;
still a man’s world.

A happy multitude
snow on boots perhaps
but still stamping.

A man alone
with cold lips
still blowing.
