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.
