hello there – May 13

5.13.2015

they locked us in

for the first two

weeks

 

then out into the

big yard

for first.

 

stand in the group

don’t be alone,

until

 

the one on my left

reaches to

stab

 

the one on my right

downing

me

 

and the catwalk

guard shoots

him.

 

with a dead man

on either side

of me,

 

let me out now

and I will

never

 

do another bad

thing again

in my whole

life.
