Today, tomorrow, never

The flat line of the walls around us. A border. 
The tall line of the bars between us. A border.
The straight line of the back I won’t bend. A border.
The broken line of the gaze you avert. A border.
Borders to count, to cross, to escape.
Today, tomorrow, never.

Today, tomorrow, never is a cycle of phases and rituals, just like the prison life it seeks to recreate. Standing between the characters are more than obvious physical barriers, and these subtle, impalpable borders will prove no easier to cross. The only thing we have plenty of is time to try.
