of the interior (from the archives)

Columbus wanted the familiar of Jerusalem. Instead found the edge: Wilderness.

Wilderness, not so long ago. A train came by tracks, 1853. The wolves were bigger then, had more hunger. Not just for women in red, but women in white.

Now wolves are holographic taxidermies in a simulated forest. Some maps take time.

The chartless physical coming to a close. Telescope, microscope, Master. How do you do & undo.

Geography accounts for the exterior & the borders are sealed.

Borderless, my Jerusalem of the interior, where the Calvary was always my own.
