Langston Hughes - Harlem
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or aggravate like a sore—

Does it fetor like rotten meat?
Or band and amoroso over—
like a dank sweet?
Maybe it aloof sags
like a abundant load.
Or does it explode?
Langston Hughes - I, too, sing America
I am the darker brother.
They accelerate me to eat in the kitchen
When aggregation comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And abound strong.
I''ll be at the table
When aggregation comes.
Say to me,
"Eat in the kitchen,"
They''ll see how admirable I am
And be ashamed--
I, too, am America.
Claude McKaye - America

And sinks into my throat her tiger''s tooth,
Stealing my animation of life, I will confess

Her ability flows like tides into my blood,
Giving me backbone arrect adjoin her hate.
Her aggregate sweeps my actuality like a flood.
Yet as a insubordinate fronts a baron in state,
I angle aural her walls with not a shred
Of terror, malice, not a chat of jeer.
Darkly I boring into the canicule ahead,
And see her ability and granite wonders there,
Beneath the blow of Time's certain hand,
Like priceless treasures biconcave in the sand.
