The interpretation of maps

The map of Africa hangs on the wall
shape of a skull
Somalia its nose
Senegal the back of its head

I wonder if we would think of Italy as a boot
if it did not make so many of them

if it was the Congo shaped like that
would we say it looks like an arm
cut off
lying there
hand open
hoping
for mercy.
