Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.

I am looking at a mess of a map
a sloppy looking thing like a third grader painted ,
Lines going up, down, anywhere they want,
Yet never where they’re supposed to go.
Where am I supposed to go?
That is the real problem, now isn’t it,
Where am I supposed to go in this large busy world?
I guess I need a map,
a map
of me.

The author's comments:
in this large busy world sometimes you feel like you need a map, not of a city or town, but a map fo yourself to tell you where exactly you're supposed to go.
