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
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.
