Harlem by Langston Hughes

                                                    Harlem
   What happens to a dream deferred?
   doest it dry up
   like a raisin in the sun?
of fest like a sore
and then run?
Does it stink like
rotten meat?
or crust and sugar over
like a sugar sweet
Maybe it just sags
like a heay load.

Or does it explode?
