atlantic island’s dream

–december 31, 2017–

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

when the winds arrived
they destroyed a foreign dream:
the American dream that never was just died

in spite of the atlantic’s screams
the hurricane left our puerto rican dream alive
and as hard as moving forward now may seem

our lone star will forever thrive
