Does That Place Exist Anymore?

Today’s installment for Flashback Friday. Although I have a vast collection of poems from the past 6 or 8 or more years, I am choosing one that I posted before, exactly 3 years ago. This poem was for FFFC #24 (wow, that was a while ago!) and was called “Atlas.”

An atlas is open, made of paper --
 
A man points with index fingers
Attached to weathered hands: “Here.”

I post this from a smartphone —
Atlas carries the changing Earth
Does that place exist anymore?
