Which was beside the raisins in the sun

A Cream-Puff Deferred
with apologies to Langston Hughes
What happens to a cream-puff deferred?

  Does it go to mold
  Or gestate like a cheese
  And turn to curd?
  Do its insides liquefy—
  And then ooze?
  Or does it have to learn
  to sing the blues?

  Maybe its taste evolves
  Like hundred-year-old eggs.

Or does it sprout legs?
