…And So The Green Goes

— Pushpa MacFarlane

It’s no longer houses
for sale, but homes,
people’s lives—their life savings
on borrowed time.

Families forgoing
their hard-earned vacation,
trading their dream
for a fantasy—

Mazatlan,
Puerto Vallarta,
Jalisco—
a mouthful of exotic words,
saved pictures
from travel magazines,

surrogate memories
from someone else’s
fantastic vacation.
