Dreams and Dollar Signs – Poem by Dan Flosi

Poetry by Dan Flosi

On the other side of the lake
Scattered around the shoreline

We see dreams and dollar signs 
A glint of evening light off the private lake, 

And the trailing clouds tracing the sky, 
Tell us ownership is a myth. 

Under shady green maple leaves
Mosquitoes bite our legs.
