Anagoglin Treasure

Anagoglin Up That Hill
For G.F., Critic

The young surveyor asked the elder man
if he knew where that corner marker lay.
Said the elder, "You'd do well to stay
here and forget that ever ill-turned plan

to divide up the world beyond that hill,
for wildness begins there, way out yonder,
where you start to wonder as you wander
in that forest thick as night, through deep still-

ness that sorely undertakes your measure."
But young man, ears blocked to never listen,
filled with names of distant lands to christen,
lit out for his anagoglin treasure.
