Kid in the Park

Kid in the Park
by Langston Hughes


Lonely little question mark
on a bench in the park:


See the people passing by?
See the airplanes in the sky?
See the birds
flying home
before
dark?


Home's just around
the corner
there--
but not really
anywhere
.


--The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes, p. 376
