Standing in Silence

I stand velcroed in my prone stander:  my blue gray eyes frozen in a secluded gawp fixed on a blue brick wall.

What is behind that wall, mortar and cement?

No behind that wall are dreams, unrestricted passions, and soveerignty that are just beyond my grasp at the moment.


The fiber of my muscles tense and  stiffen; my feet weiged down by the transparency of my faux second  legs.


My intellect is haunted by the apparitions of all those innocents who are abled differently; who have been banished to the forgotton cells of group homes and institutions, so many ages ago.

Then I am released, lifted back into my chair as my muscles loosen from another two hours of standing in silence.
