in line, waiting


Dreams, 1965

see, words of questions
coming true
lines of people
were they directed
would stretch for miles
food and clothing
garden-style housing, utopia
in a square mile
surrounded by power
keep them in line
words of questions, they speak
thrown into a trash heap
broken promises and shattered lives
see the mountain growing?
it soon will be bulldozed, forgotten
the people who stood in line.
