What Is Jail Like?

Jail iz hard. U can get hurt by other inmates. Dey might fuck u if u not careful. Specially if u a sexy boy. Also, u should join gang. For protection. In jail fud iz not good, no sir. But hey when I wuz on the outside I ain’t even get no food. No dental care either. In here I do. Dat was not just no rumor. And also Andy, he a great guy. He talk to me about my problems. Only good thing in jail that I met Andy. Ok. I hab to go now. Bye bye.



When I got to jail
I had to share a cell with a humongous guy
I’m like damn…hey what’s up I’m Jose
Hey, what’s up man. Top bunk is yours.

But what if I fall off. I might hurt myself.
You think I give a fuck?
Tell you what, man. I’m actually a poet. That’s what I’m in here for – poetry.
You don’t say

Yup. And if you give me the bottom bunk I’ll write you one poem a day

Actually…that sounds pretty cool. Can you write one about my family? I really miss them.

He sat on the bed and started sobbing

I’m like, that’s ok. You’ll see them again when you get out

No. I won’t.

Why not. You’re not getting out?

No. I killed them.

Excuse me, guard. Can you put me in isolation?
