A Mind Infinite

Infinity: The Views of a Dreamer

Freemont Street

Neon lights pollute the sky,

paper scattered throughout the street

The heart of the desert after dark,

a representation of the American nightmare

Where dreams have come to die,

dreams of winning big – the American spirit of consuming in excess

Bearded faces pushing carts around,

many with little teeth and cracked voices

Begging for change in desperation,

filling the street with endless numbers

At dawn,

they’ll all have scattered in thin air to some other forsaken place

Street walkers, their abusive pimps and the array of hoodlums will be replaced,

by the sound of marching feet of tourists

Looking to win big in the desert,

on Freemont Street
