Half Drunk Muse Poetry


Impact by Lisa Zaran

Here is the sky,
falling at one hundred meters
per second.
It’s almost on top of us now.
Here is the ground,
pulsing from the center
of its chest, a rapid hearbeat,
a planet on the run.
Here are some apples:
if we survive the impact,
we’re bound to get hungry.
