Walt Disney World on my iPhone

This is one of my older Disney poems, only published here. I love paper theme park maps! I still use them rather than the ones in the Disney app.

Walt Disney World on my iPhone


A theme park map used to be stuck in a back pocket,

slick flapping of wrong folding I'd surrendered to.


It was something to fight over with my brother,

or sunshade for the baby's stroller,


a wrinkled souvenir. But now my phone holds

these little rides that always start on time.


When it goes dark, I can trace the trails of my finger:

here is where I was, over there's where I want to be.
