We are luminous
Words to banish dark places.
Poems behind bars

Years of pure boredom
Then seconds of sheer panic.
Time dies behind bars.

Dead grass, muddy track,
Razor wire fence, blue sky.
The yard behind bars

Eighty square feet shared.
Best friend and worst enemy.
Cellmates behind bars.

Monkey mind chatters.
Yogic meditation helps
Sit in emptiness.
