Delta of Mars

Freedom sits captive
on an island in the Caribbean
wounded in battle
beaten in Bagram
hung from his wrists
shackled to the floor
stripped and exposed
violated

Freedom sits in solitary
in a camp called Delta
thinking of his wife
dreaming of family
remembering tools
pencils and pens
a cash register
a campfire

Freedom was ambushed in Afghanistan
plucked from Pakistan
kidnapped on a European street
in JFK airport

Freedom
strapped down
gurgling
washed down
a black drain hole
