Time to crack open my collected Langston Hughes and discover some more of his wonderfulness. So many unread poems. So little time.

Cafe: 3 a.m. 

Detectives from the vice squad
with weary sadistic eyes
spotting fairies.
Degenerates,
some folks say.  

But God, Nature,
or somebody
made them that way.

Police lady or Lesbian
over there?
Where?

by Langston Hughes (The poem is about a police raid on a black gay establishment)
