I Sing to you of Daniel
By Jem Johnson
I sing to you of Daniel,
Eater of his mother’s famous posole,
Player of video games like Fallout and Call of Duty,
Worker at school so he can play on his console,
Lover of the parents that make sure he isn’t gloomy.
Listener of rappers like The Notorious BIG,
Dreamer of Futures unbeknownst to me.
“Nieto” to his grandmother,
“Daniel” to his brothers.
“Danielito” to his mother,
Daniel, who dreams of a new computer.
Daniel, who dreams of being a new producer.
Daniel, who still searches for his future.
