A Map of Somewhere

I have never seen this town before,
at least I don’t recognize the streets,
it’s a strange thing to find hidden.

A map found in an old chest of draws,
tightly implanted between wood,
No markings of notable significance.

The names are unfamiliar, landmarks,
street names ever so generic,
market street, city road, back lane.

Hoping to find an X marking a spot,
or a route penciled in somewhere
let alone a hint as to the township.

The map is so unassuming, why?
Why was it hidden so well in the chest,
what reason has it to be a secret?

Poring over it night and day now,
I obsess too much, note to self:
Stop buying second hand things.
