when doubt
has layer by layer
backed you into
an oubliette
nuts and bolts candy 
from metal bricks
there's only one
way out

if only
i had my tools
with me -- nevertheless
i am able to fashion
a screw driver
from the butter knife
i concealled from last
nights extremely
dry chicken

they were stupid
to have left a butter knife
here in with me
-- i take my make shift
piece and begin
to unscrew the hinges
apparently --  when
the asylum
had been built
in 1954

it was the style
to fashion hinges
that are held together
on the outside
of the door 

they should have
never underestimated
