Arts Lab Writing            The Arts Lab: Writing            Arts Lab Photography


by Nevada Kerr

The rejoicing trickster reminisces
On an empty canvas she draws a picture
Of the convolutions of her weirder sisters
The oyster opens, the clam confesses

Fix your eyes on these apparitions
These wily sly imp magicians
Your vision blurs and the world digresses
Shifting like a play on words

Turning round and round till you solve her riddles
Glory, honor, measureless esteem
Killing time with the Devil's fiddle
A row of pins, a hill of beans

She plays both ends against a golden middle
Reason, madness, hope, and gloom
In the dead of night you can't resist
The promise of the twilight moon
