"Free Dot Dot Dot"

 

Caged in secret 
Bars on top and underneath
Reek of sickness, quietly

 

Narrow eyes and white coats
Tapping pens and orange plastic
Hesitant, willing, ready
Scribble those letters
It’s my ticket, the fastest 

 

Pressure paused
Some relief
Even though I can’t sleep
I’m still partially free.
