Scrap of a Map - for solo piano

This piece is (loosely) written in a post romantic style. About 3 1/2 minutes long.

I thought this was a nice piece. What does the title refer to?

The title refers to when this piece was just a rough outline of a melody and chord voicing, and some counterpoint - which I was using as a 'scrappy map' for improvising the piece..
But as I got deeper into the process, the piece seemed to demand a more formal approach as to note specificity and the rhythm - and became a 'composition.' I just decided to keep the original title - for no reason in particular.
Thank you for listening, anacrusis. Im glad you liked it!
