Corey Porter – Ferris Wheel (Poem)

Evil is everywhere…

like air.

making its rounds like tornados.

watching politicians spin like Ferris wheels…

life is far from fair.

As inmates dream of beach chairs in Barbados…

but face prison yards, bars, and mess hall mash potatoes..

as brown gravy splash from ladles..

he reminisces.

Remembers kisses from grandma.

The things he misses

He squeezed a handgun when he was young…

now every day he dreams he misses
