cartography is the strangest science today
as morning alters the fittings of the hour to form
shapes wholly new.

I can wade Grief –
Whole pools of it –
I’m used to that –
But the least push of Joy
Breaks up my feet –
And I tip – drunken –
Let no Pebble – smile –
‘Twas the New Liquor –
That was All!

—Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), from 312 (Franklin)
