[Leo Alexander Jones was sentenced to death for the killing of a police officer in 1981. In 2005 he was exonerated for the crime 7 years after he had been put to death. The last words spoken between Leo and his wife the day of his execution]
There’s a long legged spider building a new web in the corner of my cell
i named her after you, she has your sense of stretch
her canvas of webs your patience it gets attached to things
it know will eventually die…
i destroy it once a month.
there is something so phoenix about it starting over,
something like honesty whose shadow has mocked me for 17 years
it laughs like a mouse trap,
rattles across my rib-cage like a baton across a firing line of metal bars
… Love for my last meal i ate your photographs
love i have shoved our bed against the wall fall into sleep
my ear pressed to cold plaster listening for your heart
I let your letters dissolve on the back of my tongue
I am cronos trying to swallow a life i do not deserve
i want your tears to pour out of me during the autopsy
let the coroner pull out a goddess from the intestines of a martyr-
William Evans and Rachel Wiley ” Leo Alexander Jones”
