The Prison

by Nick Andrea

All human minds, linked as
One giant, breathing thing,
The prison within,
Becomes the prison without,
Drab, concrete walls,
Cold, iron bars,
Bland, boring food;

A way of dealing with the
Human shadow –
Quarantine,
Mute button,
Amputation;

Except, it’s not.
It cannot be.
The shadow will remain,
As long as we do,
Like yin to the yang,
Like night to the day,
Like up to the down.

The shadow remains,
But prison is a consciousness.
