African American Poetry (1870-1926): A Digital Anthology

To Midnight Nan at Leroy's by Langston Hughes

Strut and wiggle,
Shameless gal.
Wouldn't no good fellow
Be your pal.

Hear dat music. ...
Jungle night.
Hear dat music. ...
And the moon was white.

Sing your Blues song,
Pretty baby.
You want lovin'
And you don't mean maybe.

Jungle lover. ...
Night black boy. ...
Two against the moon
And the moon was joy.

Strut and wiggle,
Shameless Nan.
Wouldn't no good fellow
Be your man.
