THE HOMECOMING: A POEM ABOUT PRISON

It has been an interesting week.  On Monday I wrote about my criminal past while thinking of the future of an acquaintance who has been charged with first degree murder; and I explored the prison industrial complex.  A few people commented and shared personal stories of relatives who are incarcerated.

I do not share my poems often on my website.  This week seemed appropriate.  I not only shared a poem, I wrote about the story behind the poem, and today I share a video of me reading the poem on location of where it happened: The Homecoming.

Enjoy, SHARE, Tweet, and comment.
