Keep Art Alive :: Art by Jolene Lai

Blurred Lines
(by me)

Bloodlines and bribery,
simple breaths can be ice sharp,
for those with heart sleeves,
and memorized alibis.

And yet the pulse quickens,
car crash character study,
manipulation,
the director shakes a finger.

Wear your very best,
regret around the collar,
confess the latest,
To the water cooler witch hunt.

Word static,
hostage taped mouths,
put the money in unmarked bags,
run like hell.

Still the earth spins,
dance of voices,
movement,
birth and death surround.

And
we
all
fall
(down).
