The penalty imposed
for writing
expressively
is

LIFE

I have been sentenced to L I F E

... to write

Handcuffed
to concept papers
with ink pens
for keys

Chained to short statements or phrases
that won't ever get
... time ...
to be free

An etymon to be written
in the confines
of compositions
between thoughts
behind bars
and
in the small spaces of
concrete lexical elements

I was framed
by abstraction
with false intent ...
my lyrical terminology
was taken out of context

imprisoned by my
mind's discontent

A libretto that
got locked up with
my expletive emotion

... and

now there is
no chance for vocabular parole
before this term
will expire

No conditional release
will be granted
and all of
my transcripted notes
will remain
unspoken

So here I sit on "Soul" Block C
pleading the 5th
or maybe even "involuntary poetry"
but until my next appeal
I am here
to finish out
a FULL Life Sentence.

Serving a full life sentence
in an 8 and a half by eleven
cell...
because ignorance has been
killed after the quill tip was filled
.....alone.....
locked in solitary confinement
exercising so my PENt in
aggressions....
are set free
......and my scribe gets stronger
as I write........trapped
on a chain gang of undisclosed
soliloquies and mental
passages I let the world see
my soldiers story minus
the HBO...
.....comma laden
period puntuated
and semi-colon persecuted
when I wrote my song
and graphically depicted my
psalm......
...............the alphabet
was the jury that judged
me when I was convicted
said I was a "POET" so
to the paper I am sentenced...
been here for fifteen years
now no parole.....so many
tales told........from behind
the green tinted bars
of this mental
PENitentiary....


watch out now, you dun got a brother started!!! nice piece N2....keep flowing Ni...So...May..Gio...San...Ang...oops my fault...do what you do....classic
