simple dream

small dream p110_opt.jpg
No the honest work
No the genuine trying
No the smooth voice
no.

     Instead,
     some rich kids make a
     Not ever again normal life
     for those still here
                                  living

all words, including title, from page 110 of Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. poem #98 of the First 100 Days series, and poem #27 for National Poetry Month.
