' Whose knees '
by Byron Case
Written by Byron Case, innocent man behind bars for life:
Whose knees are these
that ache and crackle when I stand to greet the morning
head count - a squinting face, glinting badge, through half-
inch Lexan glass - seven forty on the dot? Thirty some
years' use like sixty; a cartilaginous tear fifteen
calendars back. The prison doctor tut-tuts my twelve
spent treading concrete in inadequate footwear.
Too much strain, not enough exercise.
Indolence is my hobby. It's true,
I bind myself together now with words.
The cost of life: a writerly stoop,
once perfect hands loosing luster,
crepitus creeping on, and, of all things, it's this I choose
to bemoan, this daily grind of passed and passing time.
