geography of the heart

the country has no name we know it begins
just beyond the map's edge in the space
between dream and vision where the grace
of unknown gods redeems from undone sins
this notwithstanding there are so few inns
upon the road to get there's a long race
the strain of it will show upon your face
but the cautious lose and who dares wins
that is the motto and that is the tale
of those who chose to travel to that goal
where answers come although nothing is asked
this is beyond the last bent safety-rail
the place where every part joins in the whole
and where the true appearance is unmasked
