What happens to passion? Mimic of “A Dream Deferred”

April 26, 2009
What happens to passion?

Does it linger like the
Smell of simmered onions?

Or rise then suddenly crash –
Like a wave on a shore?

Or overflow –
Like a cup of water
Filled past the brim?

Does it expand –
Like a hole
At the tip of a sock?

Or enhance –
Like wine over time
Shelved in a basement cellar?

Or does it vanish?
