    Nevada's bread and roses

    Inspired while reading Melissa Farley's book Prostitution
    and Trafficking in Nevada

    Nevada is no land of bread and roses
    but of pimps making promises the desert forecloses
    unsustainable life despite what everyone supposes

    desert dirt doesn't support bread and roses
    desert thorns don't grow gifts for noses
    desert grains didn't make bread for Moses
    cactus, rock and long chalky roads is
    what the desiccated Nevada landscape exposes
    a world full of jabs and pricks like a ho's is

    the lie each brothel owner carefully composes
    of bread with jam and bathwater roses
    like a carcass in the desert quickly decomposes
    leaving las vegas orchids fed through hoses
    pumping crystal white dumbing doses
    forcing the bud til it forever closes
