knowledge is power


some chance story
he once
read taught him
about two
together

chang and eng, maybe,
cleaved at the hip
who never did
like each other

or perry and
dick in their adjacent
deathrow cells,
not talking,

sent him limping
on his cast, broken
down, friendly,
vw bug with a trailer

so that they might
sit there now, all three
in the woods while
he figured out what to do
