Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?

The title A Raisin in the Sun gets its name from a line in the Langston Hughes poem:

What happens to a dream deferred?
      Does it dry up
      like a raisin in the sun?
      Or fester like a sore—
      And then run?
      Does it stink like rotten meat?
      Or crust and sugar over—
      like a syrupy sweet?
      Maybe it just sags
      like a heavy load.
      Or does it explode?

Listen to Danny Glover reading Langston Hughes “Montage of a Dream Deferred.”
