P.O.W.

 ..FOLLOWING SEAS   

 

P.O.W.
 

here i am
alone again
burning poems
and breaking promises

sometimes i believe
i might have some answers
but i don’t

i’m a prisoner
of an enemy within
interrogated and tortured
toyfully released
on my own recognizance
for another month or two

now i walk broken streets
bearing hideous scars
of undeclared wars
scarlet ridges on my body
deep, black trenches
in my soul

Norfolk, Virginia ‘87
