Best Poem of Percy Dovetonsils

The United States Of Dreams

In my cramped world
I only find room
in my sleep.
I’m cornered
everywhere else.

If the U.S.
is Mexico’s safety valve,
the place where folks
who can’t take too much Mexico
escape,
then The United States of Dreams,
is my America,
and I creep across La Frontera
to the Land of Possibility
every night,
dodging the border partrol, the rattlers,
the heat, and the cars on the 5 Freeway,
in hopes of reaching Ho-wood
and becoming
gardener
to the stars.

What I Have

I have a rendezvous with destiny.
She is the goddess who entices me.
I see her beckoning with open arms.
She promises I will not come to harm.

She guides me where I fear I’d lose my way.
She shows me how to progress through the day.
She’s not the one who loses touch with me.
She’s only hidden when I will not see.
