To Learn to Escape

To Learn to Escape

By Allie Marie

Fingertips dance across the table.
Keep your head down. Keep it still.

It isn’t you. It isn’t you.

Your knees shake, though you swear

you know the truth.

Your name is on some other list.

Opinions form a prison cell,

but you must first escape from you.
