Mosaic by Zach Kyle.

A "choose-your-own-adventure" poem, Gamer 

was published by dancing girl press in 2015.

 

Excerpt (from "Village")

 

This is where you start—

small, unassuming. No

idea what lies in store. [...]

 

There is nothing here for you

but tawny milk cows

and reassurances 

​

that that is all you need. 

 

The brass key

your mother 

pressed into your hand

 

the day the sea took her, 

all glimmer and rust,

beckons and murmurs.

Suggests: they are wrong.
