Body Maps

A poem by Danielle Rose

Image Description: Close-up of a map. A tiny figurine man with a trench coat and brief case is placed on France and is waving his right hand in the air as if hailing a cab.

Danielle Rose lives in Massachusetts with her partner and their two cats. She is the managing editor of Dovecote Magazine and used to be a boy. Her recent work can be found in Kissing Dynamite, Third Point Press & Glass’ Poets Resist.
