(Escape Plan by Bill Knott.) **What a poem. Poet trapped in a suffering body, wanting a way out. Perhaps a miracle. Or to awaken to find it a bad dream, etc. Many are imprisoned by life’s circumstances. And oh, the pain of enduring- bearing the unbearable.

John, you're too late with your comment directed at Bill. He died in 2014, or so says PH. You say the message is suicide. I interpreted it differently. I thought maybe he was suffering from some kind of terminal illness such as cancer, and knew he was dying, but hoping to find a way out.

The message is obviously suicide.... The title is ESCAPE PLAN... I can't think of any more compelling - or more strongly fused emotions than those surrounding suicide - or that such desire to leave life could be greater than life itself... I think there is incredible beauty in human emotion KC, all human emotion. Even those that I have never felt myself... but intently those I have... Artists are incredibly and overwhelmingly subject to depression.... Awesome poem Bill...
