    “how did McDavid handle it when the judge said 19?” a Poem by Eric King

      This is a feeling you can’t escape its an empty loneliness, I know it me by myself despite a strong team back in the boxing ring keep hoping that i’ll wake from this how did McDavid handle it when the judge said 19? This is fear I can feel it eating through my stomach like a starving lion lurking I float in the warm blood below that puddles beneath my cold carcass nothing I have to say, sadly is worth the struggle for a last breath when all there is to eat is poisonous plants do you skip a meal or go for broke? Vomiting up the last of my hopes torn between defiance…

    Malawi Birds a poem by Eric King

    Written in solidarity with the prisoners of Malawi who’s voices carry their stories beyond the walls that imprison them. I heard the Malawi birds they were bundled and stacked buried so deep but their voices reach so high does their location negate the warmth of their tears we can learn so much from suffering how long must our education persist who will finally be the one to rip the door off the cage wings were meant to fly not to die…

    “About Capitalism” a poem by Eric King

    These walls silent as the dark & lost haunting as a ghost these walls will fucking crush us all if we ever give up hope these walls steal inches by the hour pressing down & smashing joy these walls will gladly break us all if we ever give them the power these walls snap shots of decaying minds cold and without mercy block out the sun, in case it shines shocks out the dark in case it’s night these walls will kill us all if we dont have the will to bear it

    Urgent Action Needed Now: Don’t Let CCA Censor Eric King’s Mail!

    As folks know, Eric’s mail is being censored and political letters and literature are being rejected. It is important to keep the pressure on CCA Leavenworth to stop censoring Eric’s mail. According to Warden Isaac Johnston, it is up to the guards to use discretion in deciding which groups can be labeled as hate groups and have their correspondence rejected. This means that mailroom employees can use their own political ideology to decide what mail to allow and what to block. Unfortunately, due to CCA being a for-profit contractor, they are not held by the same rules as state and federal prisons. Yet there is a very short list of…

    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 )
