9 am ish Palace of Justice

Palace of Justice


J — man — a threatening man —

lifting weights in lights-out jail — it’s his apartment —

and again

— glistening as we do in want and work —

glistening across his back —  U — S —

glistening black against wormy white skin

— T — on the long slog to this

moment — this computer —

these hands these keys tea cooling left — I

how the body — this body — has plotted and waited

labored and coded — C — elaborate braided

codes tattooed permanent black, ever unseen

— make it —

make it — fixed — who is fair? of them all?

E — waiting.
