[in margin] 10/11/2020
remembering their smiles
the Jeannies ["i" in "Jeannies" is dotted with a heart] in our heart
here in our golden years
red, orange, yellow
on a blue background
colors of the morning sky
sunrise over prison wall
bright colors descending
into a dark hole
old men staring out
from cold prison cells
through the shattered window
of all their lost souls
looking for old daydream
left on a prison bus
from when they were young
now only lost memories
brought back by the sunrise.

Am I too old to be mad Little Mel
have I forgotten how to use my words
to fight with a poem
about the truth without fear
