Sweet American Dreams
She came to this place looking for her American Dream, but she never anticipated the nightmare it would turn into.
She came from a small town in Russia that no one here knew how to pronounce or cared to. She met him online. It looked picture perfect, they looked picture perfect. Of course, underneath that it was always brewing.
“That bitch is after his money”.
“Mail Order whore”.
“Anything for a green card”.
She smiled and didn’t know what they were saying, nor cared to know.
She smiled as she waited for her visa to approve, through all the documents and papers, on the many hours spent on a plane, and on the day she said “I do”. Ascending down to the altar like some kind of angel, she was so close to us mortals yet so far into her own heaven.
She was abruptly awoken from her dream when they escorted her new husband away, in handcuffs.
