Poetry Slam Tuesdays: Taped to the Wall of My Cell

Today's (multimedia!) poetry slam comes courtesy of my brother Jay, who sent me this poem by the prison poet, Etheridge Knight. Not sure if "prison poet" is really the proper term here, but Knight wrote a book of poetry while serving an eight-year stint in the Indiana State Prison, so if not proper, it's at least accurate.

For all you poetry slam traditionalists, read the full poem here.
