Can You Get There without a Smart Phone?

Yes, if you measure distance in roods and furlongs anyway
and don’t need to know where you are going
exactly or how many milliseconds it will take you
to get there, and if you are content to sojourn up
and down boreens and by- roads and have to double
back again, discovering vistas not tagged or flagged
on your Memo, if you can allow yourself
to get lost from time to time, if you have
all the time in the world.

It helps if you are stoical.
It helps if you are patient.
It helps if you have a Samsung SGH T199
and no Sat Nav

and no other choice.
