Bells in my Cell

I can't turn off the alarm clock.
Antistrophe rings the kitchen chimes.
Church bells stagger through the day.
Iron bars block the windows
Through which I see stone walls,
Broken glass, spider webs & salamanders.
Last night I dreamt we had a son,
Rose's little brother. Would
The Judges ever let me see him?
Will they ever let me see Rose?

To Althea, From Prison

Stone walls do not a prison make,
    Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds innocent and quiet take
    That for an hermitage;
If I have freedom in my love
    And in my soul am free,
Angels alone, that soar above,
    Enjoy such liberty.

Richard Lovelace (1642)
