For Samir Issawi and all the Palestinian prisoners…


Skin striping the bones

to cover your nakedness

Water runs through throat

to save your hidden face, your shamelessness

Rub salt on this wound

to clean the stitches of weakness 

Tailored dignity made from this

tattered brown clad

Iron chains only pin these hands

show the metal of this man

Rid yourselves from these flimsy rods

redeem the anguish of a mother sobs

reclaim the freedom of a land robbed

rewrite your history

on the prison walls,

Defeat your enemy
