Biding time she pulls
at her hair like someone itchy
with cooties having
spent too long in a 9 x 6 cell--
light staring in her eyes
the scratching and clawing
fight at the Legion--
lucky someone didn't lose an eye
took two cops to pry her loose.
Sure hot in here no wonder the ants
are on the run. They've taken
over her space means no reason
for sleeping only time to think
on how to escape this antsy place.
