"Kitchenette Building" by Gwendolyn Brooks (1917-2000)

Brooks, Gwendolyn. "Kitchenette Building." Poetry Foundation. Poetry Foundation, n.d. Web. 16 June 2016.

Why do the speakers wonder “not well” and “not for a minute”?


The dream is not strong enough to hold their attention very well or for very long.


Their commitment and sense of responsibility keep them focused solely on their jobs.


They have not been raised with the capacity for active imagination.


Their hopes are restricted by the effort required for the mundane and the practical.


The dream is clearly incapable of penetrating their horrid surroundings.
