Your poetry is very visceral. I liked a lot of your choices in wording and the comparisons that you draw. I can tell that it has been quite some time since this was written and I can only hope that some of the pain you are expressing has ben dissipated and I certainly hope that you have continued writing.

At Brown University we are requesting submissions of art and letters that speak about the experience of incarceration. Below is the information. Best, Nicole Gonzalez Van Cleve
-------------------------------------------

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
If you are incarcerated in the United States or have previously experienced incarceration, we ask you to write a letter sharing your story that addresses one or all of the following questions:

What do you need the world to know about U.S. prisons, jails, probation, and/or parole?
What about your experience has been left out of the news and narrative of mass incarceration?

Acknowledgment of Consent
I understand that, by sharing my story, I am consenting to have the story placed in the website repository for Brown University’s Mass Incarceration Lab @ CSREA and made available to the public. My story will be anonymous unless I clearly state in my story: “I want my name shared with my story.” Anyone will be able to read, watch, or listen to my story and to use what they read, see, or hear for any purpose. Personally identifying information about other people, the prison, or anyone else will be removed from my story by Brown University staff. I will never be able to ask Brown University to remove my story from the website repository. I am also waiving and releasing Brown University from any claims or lawsuits of any kind for any reason related to my story. I confirm that I am at least 18 years old and I am freely and knowingly submitting my story.

I understand and agree to the terms explained above and want to participate.


How to Contribute to the Archive
Please send your story to the following email address: massincarceration@brown.edu
OR send a letter to the following address:
The Mass Incarceration Lab
Box #362
11 S Angell St
Providence, RI 02906

Your submission will be archived in the Special Collections of the John Hay Library at Brown University as well as digitized by the Center for Digital Scholarship. Brown University students taking SOC 1116 Criminal Courts and the Law in an Era of Mass Incarceration will help to curate the content of this archive. All submissions will be part of a publicly accessible repository of primary materials about the punitive consequences of mass incarceration as told by currently and formerly incarcerated people, their loved ones, and those living and working in communities most impacted by mass incarceration.

Your a sick pig, anyone who has anything to do with a sex crime against children or children in our family in the matter is just a sick p.o.s. and you honestly are where you deserve to be, you sit on here and act as if your so innocent and have changed and blame it on drugs or a stroke, at the end of the day, you knew what you were doing and the fact that it was okay to you is disgusting!! You are just as sick as the man who did those acts and you actually deserve to sit there for the rest of your life.. everyone still hasn't forgot what you did in this town and when or if you ever make it back here, Everyone will stare and talk about you.. Things just don't go away in a small town.. You can blame yourself to why you have no family or friends on here.. Your crime was a disgrace to our family!! You preyed on innocent children, and I'm sick to my stomach that I ever trusted you around mine.. God sees the true evil in you, and you will face him one day and he won't be so forgiving, you sit there with your pathetic self and keep thinking all your sick acts are forgiven, You are far from those pearly gates.. You have no real family left, decent ones atleast.. I held in my feelings over what you did for years, and I felt after reading all your trash, that you deserve to hear my feelings.. And not everyone has forgiven you nor will they ever!! You sit and rot in there in your own forgiveness, because you are extremely far from ours!!!

Thanks for writing! I finished the transcription for your post. It was interesting that UCI students were researching this since I also attend UCI. Thank you for sharing you story, and I am glad I could transcribe it.

Thanks for writing! While I'm not smartgirl445 (I left the transcription open so she could possibly respond) I do think that we could draw more people to viewing by updating the website to add an incentive to responding.

I just copied in what the last transcriber put in the replies instead of the transcription box. Still more to be done.
