PREDICAMENT

*Last lines of each stanze are from Langston Hughes- TOO BLUE

I had a dilemma,
A hiccup or two
no answer came.
What shall I do?

My brain:
built in complete disarray,
left me dumb.
What shall I say?

No solution came,
I just couldn’t understand
I began to rain.
Shall I take a gun and

follow the others
with suicide squeeze play,
games and
put myself away?
