Dreams of Gold

she sees gold

in her dreams,

hands reaching cold

through seams

of rich wood

and thinned string.


she wakes

from her dreams of gold,

pauses and trembles

for just a moment

as her eyelid blinks

furiously.



she sees red sprayed

paint over her walls,

screams telling her to

go back to her own.


she sees wrinkled paper

flying over her head,

cartoons resembling her,

laws that break and break

her dreams.



in this land of red,

white and blue,

in this land of prosperity,

she sees

nothing.
