Life at the South Pole

We live at the South Pole.
How do I know? They say
moss grows on the north sides of trees--
look around you. Q.E.D.

Also they said you could find freedom
by following the Big Dipper north
but that was in other states. When's the last time
you saw stars here?

Anyway bondage now takes subtler forms
like unseen red lines on maps
or freeways that end inexplicably

and freedom isn't something you find
at any point of the compass rose
but something you build around you.
