Unlike those who have experienced quarantines outside these prison walls, I have had no access to paper to write home or even a book to read.
Why do I have to protest?
As we try non-violence, you still beat us and kill us.
How should I be?
Like Malcom or Martin?
Twenty-three hours on lockdown and for some of us a five-minute shower and 24 hours in a cell. The tier stinks. There is no ventilation, and the floor only gets swept and mopped once a week.
Damn, George Floyd
I’m sorry for what has happened.
Couldn’t see much, as my adrenaline pumped and pumped.
Blood dripped from my eye,
but what could I expect in a situation like this?
We have no access to the law library, our visits with family are suspended, and we are only allowed a 15-minute call once every two weeks. We have no access to a religious chaplain, and we are housed 23 or 24 hours daily in a cell.
