“I’ll know I am free” a poem by Eric King



I’ll know I am free
when I am stretching out
feeling the wind on my face
doing all sorts of weird yoga poses
and when I turn my head
to the left or the right
I wont see
a single god damn fence
with a single god damn piece
of razor wire that a worker in some factory
helped make to keep other people
locked in cages
Stop making the fucking tools
to oppress other people
Remember what color shirt you’re wearing
I’ll know I’m free
when the color of shirt someone is wearing
will mean less to me
than the color of their shoe laces
