These contour lines and layered browns
are mountains, this cartographic line
of blue that picks up thin blue streams,
a river dying in the ocean’s far
too democratic green. Soak the map
in rain and when this cheap dye runs
only glaciers and the river names remain.
— Richard Hugo, “A Map of the Peninsula”
