Sometimes I think it would be nice to have that kind of time with few distractions. But I would probably end up nuttier than I am. Ironic that Stroud was not allowed his birds in Alcatraz.

Like the infamous Robert Stroud, when incarcerated in solitary confinement, an active, inquisitive mind has plenty of time to think and peruse over the finer qualities of life, and just who knows what metaphoric metamorphosis shall manifest?

Interesting analogy Jacob, deeply subliminal and abstract!

Wow! Very unique!

Locked away in the midnight hour with only pen and paper for comforts and with the words just out of mind's reach, beyond the bars of imagination.

An excellent piece, Jacob. Very originally constructed. And i love that movie!

Such word play as you slice through language and break it into bite sized chunks describing the sleepless poet obsessed with creating verse Jacob.
