On death row I was somewhat surprised,
once an inmate had been tranquilized,
that when facing death,
and a very last breath,
the lethal needle must be sterilized....

To my inmate
inmate, devotion, girlfriend-boyfriend, love,
Do I love you.
Forever, I’ll be there.
Holding you in a tight embrace,
Everlastingly clutching you with care.
As far apart as we may be,
Our souls will stay intertwined.
As one we’ll be,
inmate, anger, conflict, dark, pride, rude, sorrow, sorry,
recklessness attacks ego
fury attacks soul
adrenaline attacks viscera
middle digit attacks upward
foot attacks accelerator
vehicle attacks vehicle
hand attacks pistol
lead attacks flesh
remorse attacks fury

If someone calls you a plonker, plonk them on their bean
They're not being nice so my advice, mess em up, make a scene
But be sure to clean up the blood
Learned this from my British bud
Else you'll be involved with a fellow inmate, a ex-marine named Jean
Indelible Ink Circa 1942 Holocaust Survivors
Circa 1941 to 1943
A painful timely reminder
Lest we never forget
The inhumanity of man
Where you're only crime was to be born
Nazi death camp inmate
1 of the few
Not the many
Pass The Asylum
With a wheelbarrow full of manure
For my strawberry patch,
Pushing past an asylum
I heard the gate latch,
An inmate emerged and said
What you got there?
I said it's to put on my strawberries
So they're not so bare.
He said, gee whizz mate,
You should come inside,
When they serve our strawberries
They put cream on the side....
inmate, addiction, animal, metaphor,
When describing bad behavior
Or even a law breaker
The worst epithet humans think for those not admirable
Is to place on the miscreant a label of ANIMAL
He's an ANIMAL they'll squeal
As if animal describes an inmate from hell
On this green earth after all the rantings and railings
Never was an animal who behaved with any human failings...
crime of passion
the inmate won’t eat
because s/he is done
with life & uninterested
in continuing to live in a
world that has condemned
them to imprisonment
the warden threatens to
because the warden
says he works for the
state that “represents
it is they who have the
right to decide when
this wo/man dies & not

mudslinging, gossiping, exaggerating,
convict, inmate, teacher, father
loving, uplifting, inspiring
My own prison
inmate, dark, depression, identity,
I do not know?
Think of it as, a prison but with you as the one inmate.
Constantly fighting the "badder" you. soon becomes too exhausting.
Beating yourself up over and over again.
To find out this entire time, you have been a free man.
So I sit in my cell, chained to my bed.
No need to run free.
I'll handle my own punishment.
Not what God intended but it's my only escape.
Not running just slowing down, so my soul can catch up to me....
Full Speed Ahead
inmate, husband, time
Looks of poison,
blood runs cold,
misery in chains,
my life unfolds.
Years of torment,
trying to escape,
useless to try,
Control you take,
dominate the nest,
time to leave,
I must confess.
Enough of this,
can't take any more,
my butt is heading,
out that door....
After I,m gone,
and you sit alone,
think of the many,
nights you were stoned.
Time is running,
full speed ahead,
I have to live,
before I am dead.........
I want you to hear
the noise, light and blast.
a chandelier breaks
in splinters of hymns-
all enveloping. In the positional
vertigo, you hit the nail.
I call it quits, undating
a curve, an arch.
It was incomplete. They will parade
the victim naked, because she was
raped. Why did she let loose
the testosterones ?
Walking ferns and
The inmate wants nothing.
She has come to stay in dark
till the sun unrises.
Queen Of Contraban
inmate, funny, happiness, philosophy, me,
For: Deputy Anderson / G.C.D.C.
I am a pro, she told me so,
That I’m a sneak, stuff has 2 go.
Said: “I can’t help my knack 2 plan”,
Cuz I am “Queen Of Contraband”.
I try to be a good inmate,
The things I do, R not 4 hate.
I hope she know, I ‘m really not mad,
But being locked up, is so (F’n) sad.
I really try, to follow the rules,
Just that, in my mind, I must make jewels.
It keeps me real, to fool “THE MAN”,
Cuz I am “Queen Of Contraband”.
inmate, analogy, caregiving, forgiveness,
The temperature is taking its high
Can a little sluggish and dizzy
Pupils are dilated head thrives
Alas to my surprise
Shows the awareness the of Wonder In Your Eyes
In the prison your inmate a convict
Secured behind bars for all bad things you've done
You Mumble and you groan
Innocents has flown
A missionary comes in Witness
Tell me about the grace of God and his forgiveness
Lead you in Repentance prayer
James Edward Lee Sr 2o10
the prisoner is restless.
he is aware of noises.
he hears imaginary footsteps.
he imagines eyes that watch over him in the darkness.
in his mind he makes plans for escape.
he calculates the hours, studies the minutes.
filled with courage and cowardice.
he does not see that it is already morning.
he doesn't realize that the bars don't exist.
he doesn't feel the wind on his face.
he does not hear the silence of the desert.
freedom sometimes tastes like nothing.
