Arts Lab Writing            The Arts Lab: Writing            Arts Lab Photography


by Nevada Kerr

It's more than just a lull
This lingering stagnation
Languishing and dull
He longs for agitation

Like a tragic coma patient
Without a mind or care
Or an apathetic anorexic
All he does is stare

He's not haughty or contemptuous
He's paralyzed with fear
Unimpressed, impervious
Sad beyond compare

Rat race or rat trap
Or impasse at the bend
I think his soul was kidnapped
He's fast asleep again

A dormant mass lumbering
Eternally postponed
Loitering, stumbling
Slumbering alone
