It’s all in our DNA, written into us, and written out of us, in scientific studies, documents

and maps; all of it written up to be written back in again and digested.

You’ve been mapped; I’ve been mapped; they’ve been mapped.

Who are they then – that declare themselves supreme –

but know nothing about the maps of themselves?

I try to figure them out, figuratively!

Can such figures even be human?

Do they have DNA?

Such figures,

I figure,

must be nobodies.

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk.
