Poetry: Landmark

stone marker stabbed into earth 
nail cross hammered north to south draws
the boundary once cared for by neighbor’s
need to see where ones property ends another begins
adopted by the city as reference for roads
how many like these are in my mind, metal pierced 
monuments to touch, places to visit before
I go to dream crossing lines
drawn in sand
