Prison Poems by Etheridge Knight. Not many black poets get posted on here but I highly recommend this man. Here's one of his on the experience called "Cell Song"

Night Music Slanted
Light strike the cave
of sleep. I alone
tread the red circle
and twist the space
with speech.

Come now, etherdige, don't
be a savior; take
your words and scrape
the sky, shake rain

on the desert, sprinkle
salt on the tail
of a girl,

can there anything
good come out of

Bakunin wrote a letter to the tsar explaining why he became a revolutionary: “the confession of mikhail bakunin.” I would also suggest John Kirikakou’s prison memoir, “doing time like a spy.” It is pretty graphic so be forewarned.

WHY?! WHY MUST YOU TORMENT ME SO WITH THESE JEZEBELS? My one single wish is to be left to my own asexual devices, free from the thorned grip of perverse tempation, unclouded or swayed in my noble search for intellectual playthings of the mind, yet by your hand I am endlessly titillated by these vixens with their prodigious hips and provocative figures. Can I never satiate this thirst, will I ever know the touch of a woman and enter between her loins? Will these hands ever feel a woman's swaying weight in their open palms? Will I ever know a plump, ruby pair of lips perched betwixt my shoulder and my ear, whispering "I want you, I want you now" in that chocolatey croon I know so well from dreamtime? Will my seed ever drip from her moistened hole, indicating the completed unity of our unhinged sexual impulses?

Life is a constant hell. Day in and out these tired red eyes glaze in some attempt to shield me from these images. I am floating in the blistering heat of my id's vacuum, castrated and blinded by my wretched libido. No wonder I resent women so.

Jim Goad wrote some pretty gnarly stuff. Don't remember which book of his it is, but he's worth checking out if you want a book about someone's experience in prison

>> No.11423887


What everyone in this thread is missing is that many of the "prison authors" in fact only spent a short stint there, less than a nickel (Hitler, Russell, and I'm sure others though I can't be fucked). Sade holds up in the sense that he actually did spend much of his life in prison, not so some of these others.

Also Ted K wrote all of his important stuff before apprehension so he also doesn't count toward the OP's question (which is admittedly grammatically incorrect and so slightly confusing but the meaning seems clear).

Again, how long was he in? What'd he do? I'm not asking Google, I'm asking you by way of conversation.

I knew he was a hard-boiled egg but I didn't realize he'd done time.
