Helloooo, Poets! MayDay! MayDay! It’s Quadrille Monday again here at dVerse, which happens to be my favorite. To Quadrille with us, you simply need to pen a poem of precisely 44 words, including one word we provide. 

This week, I’d like you to become Poet-Cartographers, and put those pithy pieces on the map

Mapping. Mapped. Map it out. Write all over the map. Be a mapmaker. Whatever form of the word you choose, just be sure your poem is mapped out at just 44 words. 

The city is a map of cheerful twitters now,
And everywhere people, eyes mica-silver and blank,
Are riding to work in rows, as if recently brainwashed.

From “Insomniac” by Sylvia Plath 

“True Map” by Brian Andreas (one of my favorite poet/artists, who now goes by Kai Skye) 

“Map” by Wislawa Szymborska

New to the Q? Here’s your map of what to do: 
Pen us a poem of exactly 44 words, not counting the title, and containing some form of the word map. Post your poem on your own blog, and link up using Mr. Linky below. Then travel around the blogisphere to read some of the best poets around. The Quadrille is open all week, so be sure to come back to read and write some more! 

I solemnly swear, it’s time to get up to “no good.” 
Now, go poem!
