Arts Lab Writing            The Arts Lab: Writing            Arts Lab Photography

by Nevada Kerr

Metamorphic beauty shakes
Breaking static forms
The vain mirage without camouflage
Wears a bloody crown of thorns

Symmetry too seemly stirs
Twin hag and harridan
A splendid elegance immures
Their crumbling skeletons

A hoodwinked cupid lurks
Behind love's glassy stare
The one-eyed phantom shoots his arrow
Into the loveless air

Sightless and unseen
Behind the theatre screen
Prodigy and guiser
Await the final scene

Inside each work of art
Lies firm hope's counterpart
The incoherent spectacle
Of the decomposing heart
