Half Drunk Muse Poetry


Ineffectual Dreamer by Marissa Ranello

Honey, you can play video games forever,
antlered with migraines: but, just once
I’d like to pull you away by your navel,
like a kite, turning you inside out
and climb the coiled staircase leading to your brain,
where I’d sour the milk of technology.
