Claustrophobia – by Hanif S. Bey

I exist in a claustrophobic environment

So, when I depart my cell I have entered the claustrophobic state of mind

but when I return to my cell (9 by 12 feet)

I am free from the “Claustrophobic Apathy”

In the cell “inclusion”, “diversity” and “equality” reign,

and everything in the cell receives its respect

Outside the cell everything is subject to limitation,

while in the cell you can chart your own place of travel

So, I would speculate that a little bit of “isolation” can cure a whole of claustrophobia
