Arts Lab Writing            The Arts Lab: Writing            Arts Lab Photography


by Nevada Kerr

A sultry trolling trull
Cursory and duly dull
Trading irrigated fields
For dusty cloaks and veils

Takes a bit of humble pie
To the tall talk crow
Coming down off the tide
Drying up below

For the third time down
Squeezing water from a stone
In the muffled monotone
Of a mummy scraping bone

Out of air and ozone
In a dreary outsourced sky
Outcries in the free zone
Are in very short supply

In a dribbling lovelorn croon
Under drunk and bloody moon
She bends to purge the ground
Shriveling like a prune
