A Map to Fit Inside a Locket

From drone-height, does it look so poor?
            What I mean is, reduced from perspective

of height as well as distance and time?
            Corroded green of the metal gate, ash

colored cinderblock fence. Chipped front
           steps atoned for by scraps of inlaid marble, 

swayback in that part of the roof which still collects
          alms of water from heaven. I have a gold chain

from the time I used to live there. Unclasped,
          it curves in a line toward the dream of an amulet.
