I would go

wandering

because everywhere

away from there

held colours

adventures

strong possibilities

other than NO

some turned into scrapes

multi hued bruises

difficult long nights

contemplating bleak futures

& the others?

man they held promises of life

lives beyond compare

but the authorities

if & when they found me

always returned me there

& I would gather together me

my resources

hold tight for a while

before I could escape again
