                              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



                                                            Eviscerated


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