    Mail is making it through!

    Eric is over the moon having his mail back and hearing from his friends! It’s making him feel so strong and ready to win in March and end this three and a half years of hell. Sitting indefinitely in segregation can really throw a wrench in the trial prep machine. It wasn’t until a year and a half in that he even had his glasses. He survived 18 months of communication restrictions. He survived so so much thrown his way. But beyond survival he is ready to dominate in March when he gets to finally have his trial. He wanted to send everyone love and thanks 🖤 and sat he…

    This Vile Institution

    I have the blues like a dead man’s lips This vile institution Serving your cereal with a cup of warm piss they’ll teach me a lesson If only my cold shoulder didn’t come with a chip for all my treason maybe my life was a failure, but it felt like a gift the dementor is freezing I’m a thorn bush that needs to be clipped

    Our Getaway

    With a shovel and a dream I begin heading your way The ground is cold and hard and inclined to budge But we fight it, we fight hard and we fight the calendar We’re expected to break to throw in every towel Our muscles are aching Sore but not breaking Meet in the middle We’ll help each other to escape To flee society and heartbreak Together we’ll tunnel out of this pain and nothing will stop our getaway

    “They forgot we were earthworms”

    They tried to bury us They forgot we were earthworms Eating out their rotten brains And shitting out their undigestible’s that we were fucking shovels just ‘cause someone throws dirt on you doesn’t mean you can’t throw That shit right off that we were landmines waiting for one, wrong, cocky misstep To bring them to their knees and send their knees into the trees that we were fucking zombies we’d keep rising up ‘cause we didn’t crave brains we craved freedom that we didn’t mind the underground away from their laws and harsh glares that we were Prairie dogs digging tunnels and spending all day just barking and talking shit…

    “Circumstances “

    We are not victims of our circumstances We are the victors over them Circumstances gave us thin ice and heavy skates took our families and morphed them into something horrific Gave us cold nights And thin blankets no heat, but rocket launchers We have hearts that fed beatings and eyes that can’t look away and lots of time to think about it We found the will to fight so it gave us an enemy that can’t die gave us eyes to read letters of heartbreaking sorrow Circumstances gave us rotting logs to make homes then laughed a the tornadoes taught us to count so we’d know just how much we…

    “Owls”

    Wish I could write poems about owls but what do I know They sure are cute when young unless you are a mouse they want Sitting like time passing under a harvest moon head saying no to every question even the ones we haven’t asked Are you wise or am I a fool? share your wisdom mystical ass Crouched under your tree sticks digging like miners into my bare feet Why have you not written a poem about me?

    Eric’s Mail Ban Lifted

    Tight ropes, taut lines

    In the past three plus years I’ve been in the SHU (segregated housing unit), I’ve been directly aware of nine hangings. That is, occurred either on my range, in my cell, or near enough that I could hear the body hit the ground. Some of these were “cries for help”, some were serious, all were scarring and devastating. Almost always BOP staff hides behind either indifference towards our lives, or bureaucratic policy to avoid actually helping… at USP Atlanta they rushed in and yanked the prisoner down (by the legs), slapping them, yelling to “be a man, not a bitch!” at other institutions they laugh, yelling to quit faking.  Two years ago here at Englewood Levi hung up,…

    Eric’s “Motion to Suppress” granted in part.

    “Despite the Court’s conclusion that factors one through four weigh in favor of the voluntary nature of Defendant’s statements, those factors simply do not outweigh the coercive effect that the physical and psychological suffering at the hands of BOP officials apparently had on Defendant.5 Therefore, in light of the foregoing, the Court finds that the Government has not met its burden to demonstrate that Defendant’s statements at the interview were voluntary. Accordingly, the Court concludes that Defendant’s will was overborne such that his statements on August 20, 2018 were involuntary and must be suppressed.” At Eric’s disciplinary hearing on October 15th a federal judge for the first time was able…
