Streaming Binge-ish Watch Marathons

He grew up with marathon sessions of hillside romps

wandering through forests and along old stone walls

imagining the battles between soldiers colored blue and gray

He grew up collecting stacks of comics inked like Warhol’s Soup Cans:

Sgt Rock

Jonah Hex

Swamp Thing

Stories throwing fuel on the fire of youthful imagination

Now the invitation beckons from Streaming Services

Marathons of shows that have outlived entertainment value

Binge watch every season of medieval political intrigue sprinkled into war gore and sex

And the wonder of the forest wanderings seems so far away

and the burning imagination is a dying ember

choked out by responsibility

lulled to sleep by the opiate of



watch marathons
