Release of John D


john d walked out of prison
eighteen months in the slam
for smoking weed
and doing coke

john d walked out of prison
with his right hand as his lover
no place to go
except away from the memories
of the first night
and the gangbang shower
the stink of sweat
and grubby hands searching him
first the guards
then the lifers

john d walked out of prison
a free man with no money
dressed smartly in prison blues
a blue webbed belt
stained workshirt
blue dungarees and state skates
plastic bag slung over his shoulder
thumb out traveling
hitching a ride
to nowhere in particular
dressed in blues
heading nowhere
to no one

john d walked out of prison
rehabilitated man
future bright
flipping the bird to the past
chasing someone else's dream
hoping to survive
knowing he will
'cause he steals

john d walked out of prison
