The Detainee

Marooned
  on an island
  called Delta

trapped
  in an iron bubble 
  never bursting

threadbare
   the hope
   tethering me to life
   in year ten of my exile
   my captivity


In nightmares
  I see my wife's face
  hear neighbors denounce me
  for bounty
  my father convinced
  his son is an outlaw

My tears are my food
  day and night

My only solace
   the Book
   of God's word
