Poetry in Las Vegas


There is as much poetry in a city like Las Vegas, regardless of its reputation as Sin City, than any other.  Admittedly, it is very much a place to experience and indulge, rather than to watch or reflect in.

However, the extreme visual and sensual stimulation provides material that can be used for many different analogies that can be used in poetry, for example, to express a wide range of human emotions from the overtly obvious to our unconscious deep desires.  Having recently spent a week there, I was overwhelmed with ideas amongst all the “superficiality, shows, sparkle and sin”.

It has as much depth of character as a city that is hundreds of years old in England.  Inspiration for the here and now rather than history…..
