Suzy, the innocent don’t try to escape by Jordan Trethewey

I-75, suburban ‘merica,
not prime geography to relocate
after a Houdini escape
from a circus regime

ask ’87 Cuban nationals
detained in Atlanta state pen
immigration a-no-go

different stripes don’t go unnoticed
or tolerated for long
before police draw weapons ’round here

especially if you disturb
a beloved wiener dog penned outside
with a big Bengali hug
