134 lbs.

Aubree Blomgren

People ask me, "how much do you weigh?"

I weigh how much hot weather weighs

I weigh how much wahoo weighs

I weigh however much power weighs and pomp

The scale at the bottom

Of the map tells you how

To read it's distances

The scale in the bathroom;

The distance between you

And everyone else. But it doesn't

Tell you your weight.

It numbers your heavy. We are so light

We need something to keep us here.

Things can only be mapped that have enough heavy

To stay put.
