To life without the possibility of parole
When societal forces may have played a role
The 175 women
serving life without the possibility of parole
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).
