Some people might want to escape from West Allis. Then again, lots of people want to escape from Milwaukee or even Sussex, so it's a perspective thing.
- The escape plot is physical, and as such, concentrates its energy on the mechanics of capture and escape. ... Escape in this plot is literal: The protagonist is confined against her will and wants to escape." This is a kind of mirror to the rescue plot--instead of waiting patiently to be rescued, here the victim is their own hero and frees themselves. - http://www.mit.edu/~mbarker/exercises/exer970314.txt
- In a kind of reversal of the rescue, a person must escape, perhaps with little help from others. In this, there may well be elements of capture and unjust imprisonment. There may also be a pursuit after the escape. - http://changingminds.org/disciplines/storytelling/plots/tobias_plots.htm
- plot involves a Protagonist confined against their will who wants to escape (does not include some one trying to escape their personal demons). - http://www.tennscreen.com/plots.htm

Ten years after final cuts,
And a few after the career-ending
ACL surgery left no scholarship
Still playing at Rainbow Park.
A day in too-early spring
The sponge-field feels cold:
Every ball waterlogged
from yesterday’s rain
and this morning’s drizzle
and tomorrow’s chance of showers....
