Jail

I miss my incarcerations
out there I'm anonymous
another a blackface
in a white crowd
a double felon
on borrowed time
been in the rathouse
for six months
couped up like a chicken
no dignity
no privacy
no justice
in some ways, it's home
familiar surroundings
bars you can not get a wild turkey in
not even before closing time
circumstantial evidence shows
a life sentence with no life
no plea bargain
it looks grim
odds..........s
