at lunch time we made jaffles
and then everyone sat in the circle of power
and said nice things about each other
these people with dyslexia, and fat, and shy, and afraid
Daniel, the 62 year old Irish carpenter was mostly deaf
though he had an anecdote of holding out a gun
to shut somebody up
and Kenny had been in jail
though he looked great in his new purple shirt and braces
but his black eyes bulged
a lamb lost on the other side of the fence
