The fulfillment of a desire or else reported missing by moving off the map – Gabor G Gyukics

 

the fulfillment of a desire or else reported missing by moving off the map 

the native elder
who lives behind
a wind shaped cliff
on the rocky plain
erased the road
leading to his hogan
from the map
decorating a wall
in the local precinct
