Just a black man in Soledad (2017)

With weathered hands

Pained lips

And deep set eyes

He’s just a black man in Soledad

A twisted back

Suffering constantly 

He’s crippled

And just a black man in Soledad

Within the depths of loneliness 

Set away from the rest

Wanting companionship 

But

He’s just a black man in Soledad

“You keep your place, then, Nigger”

She shouted in anger

Reminding him

That he’s only

Just a black man in Soledad
