Prompt Images

when I die
I will leave you an atlas
filled with places
I meant to stop
sandbar islands
I saw from bridges
and the lip of the ocean
I passed in the dark
a world made of names
I only learned later
marking the mountains
I swore I would visit
even though I knew
you would have to
instead
