Langston Hughes

Harlem Night Club

Sleek black boys in a cabaret. Jazz-band, jazz-band – Play, plAY, PLAY! Tomorrow. … who knows? Dance today! White girls’ eyes Call gay black boys. Black boys’ lips Grin jungle joys. Dark brown girls In blond men’s arms. Jazz-band, jazz-band – Sing Eve’s charms! White ones, brown ones, What do you know About tomorrow Where all paths go? Jazz-boys, jazz-boys – Play, plAY, PLAY! Tomorrow. … is darkness. Joy today!
