to find the way out
is not so hard, the
blueprints having been kept
handy by the previous
owner, the markings on
the wood, beneath the
plaster, easily spotted
by your x-ray eyes--

and what will you do,
when free? what
indeed......his list, marked
out in curious characters, is
a mystery even to him,
the long riddle of his life
a scarf placed this way
and that, to ward off
the cold from around
the corner
