Arts Lab Writing            The Arts Lab: Writing            Arts Lab Photography


by Nevada Kerr

I left so many things unsaid
Maybe it's better that way
This time I find silence more intelligible
Than the arguments of would-be philosophers
After a while all those voices grow confusing
And I don't want to add to the din

There's something clear and explicit
In the solemn hush of the grave
I'm not sure if the dead are deaf or mute
Maybe they're just aloof
The seclusion of the graveyard
Exaggerating their indifference
But that hardly explains mine

I'm just tired of offering opinions
All those empty words
And I'm still not sure of my purpose
I feel vacant and drained
And there's nothing ambiguous about that
