Dock of the Bay

by grimbeau


Ate cake before bed,

coffee found congealed

intact, redeemable: stirred,

revived, microwaved.

Stay of execution granted

Just three hours before deadline –

brutal brinkmanship

orders from the DA

reprieved to death row

there’s no place like home

green, green grass

to touch, taste, smell

Each dawn I live.
