                              Kurt Michaels: From Death Row

From Death Row

Kurt Michaels is my nephew. He has been on California's Death Row a long time. Here are two short poems. More of his work will be uploaded here soon. Kurt will probably write a more complete introduction himself. I wanted to get at least a photo, a couple of poems and his address up in time for Christmas.

If you would like to write him, his address is:

Kurt Michaels E64903
San Quentin State Prison
San Quentin, CA 94974


                                                            One large gaping wound
                                                            Lost are many hearts and dreams
                                                            By your hands and deeds



                                                            Weights and measures
                                                            Each healing or damaging
                                                            Gaia's balance beam
