Marx's Nightmare
by Peter McLaren

He awoke
with the aftertaste of his nightmare
weighing heavily on his
fading recollection
of factory-fed vampires in striped pantaloons
red runnels of blood
flowing from their culled smiles
squeezing the tears of the night shift workers
into small vials assembled on conveyor belts
to be sealed, stamped and sold back
to the workers
for the price of something called
labor power
He sank back into sleep
and the next day
had an idea
for a book.


Peter McLaren is Professor in the Division of Urban Schooling, the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, University of California, Los Angeles.
