Arts Lab Writing            The Arts Lab: Writing            Arts Lab Photography


by Nevada Kerr

Here the light languishes
Life defers to the sin of undisciplined bodies
The vain fancies of botox beauties
And creationism defines a new generation

As flesh is packaged in plastic
For meat lovers on the run
Fact-challenged Americans
Dead on their feet
Fight for a living wage

I ride primal archetypes
To awaken from this coma
Plunder reason and break veins
In the vernacular of dream

In the realm of nightmares
I hear the soundless party shrieks
Of born again poets and prolifers
Language dies, enticed by lies
In the free market of desire
