Freak Nation Poems
- posted 03/05/2007Poems from the Broken Arrow Show
Poet Renee Christy returns to Freak Nation, with five poems from the Las Vegas “Broken Arrow” show. Billed as “a Las Vegas tradition”, the Broken Arrow show fuses Christy’s fresh and unusual love poetry with the music of local blues artists to offset the usual Valentine’s Day sappiness. In this selection, Christy looks at the sweetness and pain of crushes, dancing as a new mating ritual, and a Zen princess.

Renee Christy’s poems delight, amuse, and provoke new ideas. Ranging from the memory of bittersweet love to an exploration of how childhood dreams come to fruition, her poems are populated by diverse characters: Gothic beauties, a womanizing Harlequin, shamans, shocked aunties, and Wile E. Coyote all play parts in Christy’s portraits of the world. These poems represent Ms. Christy’s first appearance on Freak Nation.
