Cities of Dreams
In the Music City 
and my hometown,
I watched them 
dig a massive grave, 
a concrete foundation 
for a multi-storied 
office building
aka a mausoleum, 
where all our dreams
are traded for debt 
and filed away.

Chasing the dream, not everyone becomes a soccer star, an Olympian or goes viral. Most are everyday people, which makes us extraordinary just as we are.
