When societal forces may have played a role
condemn Them
The 175 women
serving life without the possibility of parole

About the Paintoem
Poem by: C-Note
Painting by: C-Note; JoJo WhildenNetflix

Eyes Without A Face by Donald “C-Note” Hooker is the prequel to the Paintoem, Life Without the Possibility of Parole.
“Apparently I had already written a poem for that Paintoem that I wasn’t aware of,” says C-Note. “I felt this poem published by itself is bland. So I had to come up with an image. I used a photo from Orange is the New Black, whited out their faces on the theory of the nameless-faceless people. I’m working on another piece in which the piece’s title comes from a classic song. I left the eyes for Billy Idol’s, song, Eyes Without A Face, and that would represent the nameless-faceless 175+ women serving a prison sentence of Life Without the Possibility of Parole (LWOP), at the Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF).

[Editor’s Note ]: This Paintoem, like all Paintoems, are given to the public, to have free use rights, so long as acknowledgement is given to the artist(s).
