A Room of My Own: Canadian Dream

for Sam Roberts who once said, "I went out on the street today, the Canadian Dream was as far away as it's ever been..."

I used to be...
at the corners of his mouth
saliva stains

job hunting ...
shadows of a maple
across the dew

this promised land ...
each of his last words
drips with anger

Note: Sam Roberts is a Juno Award-winning Canadian rock singer-songwriter, whose 2001 debut release, The Inhuman Condition, became one of the bestselling independent releases in Canadian music history.
