Sueño

When I was little,

I was told of the sueño americano

you are told to dream in a different language without an ñ. 

The American dream is spread across the history books of many men

I found that the dream translated through the hands of my mother a more beautiful resting place. 

A place of ease and wonder

A place of freckles and veins and bones that found new forms after years of labor. 

I believe in that sueño. 

I am heartbroken by the american dream I do not fit

the expectation

in fact I am a misconception of words, babbled between assimilation and confusion 

I hang the vowels and syllables neatly because I wanted to exceed the expectation

Could have beens.
I will have been the exciting part of that conversation. A memory that served your time. I will have been the one that made an interesting memory that you can’t remember how real it was.
