Island

 
    Between two rivers,
    North of the park,
    Like darker rivers
    The streets are dark.

    Black and white,
    Gold and brown-
    Chocolate-custard
    Pie of a town.

    Dream within a dream,
    Our dream deferred.

    Good morning, daddy!

    Ain't you heard?
               -Langston Hughes
