he believed he was in control so we were just there for the ride (day twenty four)

he believed he was in control so we were just there for the ride

 

he always called dispatch

whenever shit got real

 

one way conversations

into a broken toy radio

(batteries and reality not included)

 

DISPATCH

THIS IS UNIT TWENTY TWO

IMMA NEED YOU TO SEND BACK UP

DO YOU READ

 

 

 

answered only by silence

yet he clearly understood the situation

more than we ever gave him credit for

except for the times when it benefited him the most

which was almost every time

(he was greedy

and needy)

 

must have felt so betrayed when his fellow officers handcuffed him

shocked out of his world

 

a night in the slammer would clear almost any mind

 

his mind

would never clear

 

delusional since birth

a grown man in size

yet he doesn’t know his own strength

 

and he truly believes in himself

as we all should

 

but what he believes is far from reality
