Eight by Twelve

Destructive and spoiled,
the talentless starlet arrives in court to begin her punishment.
Sentenced to ninety days.
She'll spend perhaps two weeks in her eight by twelve foot cell.
Before being released back into her world of privilege and excess.

Hours away,
a man builds his home of equal size.
A sink, a stove and a loft for a bed.
Front porch welcomes all.
Unencumbered by privilege.
Unhindered by excess.
He is free.
