Half Drunk Muse Poetry


Mail Order Menagerie by Shelly Reed

Sea kelp fig leaves
marrow gender
cornsilk and squid
Impotence importance
black pearls dried petals
Switzerland bed linens
and new veins
Two for the price of one
Globes fertility
futility robes
and herbal remedies
Bottled sunlight modems
paper bags fingerprints
Prussians and poets
While supplies last
