“Paid in Full for a View of this Mountain”

On a mountain, where is the view
spin 360 degree still there is nothing to see
so I close my eyes, need not wonder why
the faces in front and behind/extend nothing subtle,
what’s on their mind/only seeing us as dollar sign
and change is not one their minds.

    This poem was sent to us from a VI prisoner who was transferred from Golden Grove to Keen Mountain Correctional Center in Virginia last September. We are not sure that he wants his name published, so we will keep it anonymous until we receive his permission
