Inmate John Doe: 1 Year Incarceration for Having No Home

for Peggy Honeydew

That’s not his name. At the time,
it didn’t matter much what his name

was. He was being

incarcerated, because his existence was
an insult to those compliantly comfortable
Caucasians in Richland. His cardboard

shanty, garbage can fires, tree grown
                    cookware, his fingerless
                                    gloves, holes in his shoes
                                             during the very cold winter was

all too offensive. No one wanted to see him

and learn his name was the same
as theirs. So they threw his ass in prison.
