Another Letter From Jail

a poem I just wrote:

A half dozen similar to the original
and without purpose another is strung together
but this one is different
I am convinced
as it can do magic
just long enough to quit
the knot will not break
that which was a mistake

here is part of the letter from my sister which inspired that poem

...Another girl is died. This one committed suicide though. She wasn't even supposed to be placed in a room because she was sill in her blue and whites uniform. She should have been out in a holding cell in the dayroom because she hadn't even been shearched or given a Seg uniform yet. She had been trying to talk to someone the whole day before. It was because people were making fun of her and she was trying to move but they wouldn't let her. So she went to work in the kitchen and cursed out a supervisor so she could go to seg. She was in seg. for 12 minutes and her roommate ended up finding her hanging there and called the c.o. down there. So that was that. She hung herself with her shoe laces. Another memorial service.

Is dawn on good terms with Brent? I'm 13 years out of the loop

I don't know how to respond to that. I think she loves him and still is at least a bit pissed, but I can't really speak for her. BTW, how did you find this post and do I know you?
