The Repercussion of Dreams

March 18, 2008
By Greg Castillo, El Paso, TX

THE REPERCUSSION of dreams, alas.

The horizons we seek

Like the evening constellations

Before its kind stargazers

Invite upon a festivity;

Reside majestically over the heavens—
Shine—shimmer—gleam—capitulate;

A lurid mirage of broken dreams

Ample promises of luminous showers

Spectators stared intriguingly—
Standing, witnessing a sweating endless fever.


Woke up, teary eyed

Looked out the window,

A mockingbird flying by,

A crowd of people staring back

A crowd of people turned away.
