Arts Lab Writing            The Arts Lab: Writing            Arts Lab Photography


by Nevada Kerr

Recollections I remember
Cost too much to hide
Bred to be disremembered
With the drugs that you prescribe

The finer patents of relief
Manufactured for the times
Therapeutic love and grief
Products of renewed design

An ideal market for the genes
Whose founders never stumble
Chemicals to keep them clean
As complex wires jumble

The soft light transfer is complete
The molecules are holding
A humanlike sense of breach
Dreamy-eyed and molding

Too few proteins in mother's brain
The damage has been done
Robust corn that needs no rain
Stem cells on the run

I slipped a gear and went astray
In the quantum circuit swoon
Utopia nearly bloomed today
But ruin came too soon
