A Dream Deferred
modeled after the poem by Langston Hughes
Jump Ball
Does it make your heart beat
Like a racing horse?
Or does it burn like the flames of a fire-
And then cool?
Does it roll like a tire on the road?
Or does it swell
Like a bump upon your head?
Maybe it just slides
Like a hamburger on a greased grill
Or does it vanish?
