    Am I angry or hungry a poem by Eric King

    Am I angry or hungry starving and shaking throw a punch or take a bite cook a meal or start a fight? In what world does canned spoiled fruit and beans count as a meal? How hard does bread need to be before it is a rock? Do I fight for something more or swallow my dignity and food? CCA you corrupt fucks where’s the Oregon militia when you need it? I ate much better on the streets when I was homeless & free can I even complain do I have ground to stand on or thin air?

    Hometown heroes forget we exist within morality the person shooting up was once someone’s everything cuddly kids call the president a primate, cause they hate his pigment not racist if it’s politics just more social biggots one pump of blood away from being a fleeting memory once pump and pull away from an unwanted family villains in our lives aren’t just symbols they’re existing placing more importance on critical moments instead of having joy in simply loving rascal radicals ditching ethics and street battles rather duplicate love w/bubble gum flavored capsules loving all life in 8 hour segmants then rushing off to the bathroom to get in line for seconds…

    Update On Solitary Confinement 7-14-2015

    Was able to visit Eric this last week! He is still working  through  some medical things but is feeling  strong and in good spirits! This month marks 6 months being held in solitary confinement. He had a reclassification hearing to determine if he could  leave the hole but it was decided that he will remain on “life” status which means he will remain there for the duration of his time at CCA Leavenworth.  The support  he receives from comrades has been irreplaceable in keeping  him strong! Eric wants to express his gratitude for all the amazing letters and books that folks have sent him. In solidarity  ( A )

    A poem about freedom by Eric King

    One day the water that feeds              the grass Will wash away the stain      of captivity off me The clouds will open their arms in a                       Warm embrace Years of hurt and abstract existence         will be wiped clean I can’t smell freedom but one day                    we all might Days can’t be bought on the free market        But they can be stolen at gun point Trees can’t grow in a day, but we clean                    out forests in mutilating seconds… One day the water that feeds the world              will purify my soul                                      -EK

    Un-titled poem by Eric King

    There’s more to life than Judgements And gavels Dogmas and logos, division and Squalor There’s more to love than ego & control Connections between beating hearts And the rain that feeds the soil. Existence is observance And love can mean just learning Either we let go or we grow – EK
