Awakened by Death

The smells of pepper spray creep beneath the crevices of my all-clad prison door. The familiar, yet unwanted, scent instantly awakens me, along with the deafening blasts of concussion bombs.


“Stop cuff up now!” yell prison guards.

Though I can’t see, what is taking place is plainly obvious. Understanding that within the confines of this concrete jungle the best line of business is nobody’s business, I stay away from my door and try to begin my daily routine of hygiene etc.

Maybe it was the heat, a long-simmering beef, an early morning argument, or like the many who now embrace their nightmares because their dreams long ago faded, someone who’s just sick and tired of being sick and tired. Before completing my thoughts, as does the calm before the storm, all stopped- Silence!

Covered in blood from head to toe, out walked a prisoner as reserved as anything I’ve ever seen. What was seen in his eyes said it all, and the screams that vibrated throughout the tight-fitted tier confirmed it. Minutes later, a stretcher was pushed down the tier in no hurry for the inmate on top was already blanketed by the sheet that walks you from this life to another.

Awakened by death and all I could think of was the sign that greeted me at the door- “Welcome to the Big House.”
