Similar in theme to ‘I’ll pull down your fences’ from the previous year, this 1991 poem was inspired by a reading of Basho (The Narrow Road to the Deep North in a Penguin edition).

Put not your trust in me, o traveller
No maps have I for a lost soul
But walk with me if you will
While our road is one
As the trees shed their burden

Copyright Simon Kidd

Written in 1990 in an iconoclastic mood.

I’ll pull down your fences
I’ll plough up your fields
I’ll shatter your icons
I’ll bury your maps
And lead you astray
On untrodden paths
