Dawn in the Big House is a collection of poems about life inside prison, written by an inmate of one of California's penitentiaries (he has been incarcerated for various drug-related property crimes, and has no history of violent offenses). The brief, free-verse expressions offer an unforgettable glimpse into life behind stone walls. Dawin in the Big House is a compilation that, once started, literally cannot be put down. "One Lives in Stone": So long the wind begins to fade / to gray, one lives in stone, steel / as though no other form exists, / contained under a nervy sky.
