Walking around the jail cafeteria
I glance over
And see my reflection in the glass
People I don’t know can see me
And I weave through
An abundance of men
Who have been caught beating their wives
Composing two-thirds of the individuals being held.
The TV relates a story of an “improper relationship”
Conducted by a football coach.
I sit down
And stare at the TV in disbelief and
Wonder when they’ll wake the fu** up.
