Yvonne Marie

Dr. T. Pinnock 1962 (Hartford, Ct)



Joy in this hell.
Beauty in the darkness as well.
Love in this place of misery.  
Smiles break the God of money.
Though not from my sperm desire.  
She is my heart desire.    
Yet I rebuff her kindness.
Yvonne kisses me each day.
I disclose to her meanness.
I push her away.
I showed love to two sperm that pierced an Asian egg.  
To them I'm dead.   
So, with Yvonne Marie I take Joshua's lead.
I'm Hard indeed.
Ignorance surrounds my baby girl.
I need to prepare Yvonne to be a leader in this selfish world.

Dr. T. Pinnock

Dr. Pinnock first wrote poetry in the institution he resided in inside a classroom at 8 years old. The typewriter was old and manual with a keyguard. A keyguard is a device with an opening for each key to prevent a person lacking fine motor skills from accidentally hitting a key. Dr. Pinnock was granted permission to use the class alone. He labored there typing for hours ignoring his cerebral palsy. Dr. Pinnock grew up with his family until August of 1970. Poverty forced his parents to make him a ward of the State of Connecticut. more…
