Wish You Were Here, a comic by Tatiana Ryckman

I keep writing
I keep writing
but it fails to communicate
but it fails to communicate
all the places
all the places
I wish you were.
I wish you were.
As if geography were limited to road maps.
As if geography were limited to road maps.
What about the mountains of longing
What about the mountains of longing
I’ve built in my spare time,
I’ve built in my spare time,
can they be mapped? And
can they be mapped?
And would you go to night school for cartography
And would you go to night school for cartography
if you thought it’d lead you here?
if you thought it’d lead you here?
