A dream deferred
By mark cesarek
Modeled after Langston Hughes


What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it get buried in the blanket of snow?
Like the grass on the immense mountains
Or break like a bone and then swell up
Does it fly with the whipping winds like the snow falling down?
Or does it stay put
Like the trees rooted to the ground
Maybe it just freezes like the air around it
Or does it just disappear
