The first poem, Beverly Hills, Chicago, is about driving through a privileged neighborhood and realizing those people have it better than them.

The second poem, Kitchenette Building, is about dreams of something better than what they have.

The third poem, Harlem, is about a dream that is broken.

Lines from Poems

Beverly Hills: "Even the leaves fall down in lovelier patterns here." is a line that sticks out to me because leaves cannot be controlled and yet they seem to even be perfect there.

Kitchenette building: "We are things of dry hours and the involuntary pain." It speaks to me in a way that opens the eyes.

Harlem: "does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?" It is an odd way to refer to a dream.
