"The ligatures tighten. I’ve been here my entire life …” — Cameron Morse, The Convict
This collection of poems is mainly about being held captive — either by men or monsters. In most cases, it's just by fear. Demand yourself daily to answer this question — What is it that binds me? If it's something good, then tighten up the ligatures. If it's bad, then fight to the death to be free.
