Long hot sun black lady in black walks down the street in slow motion.
Her black-skinned man holds a black umbrella high
Against the sun. They walk on with sexy dignity,
Claiming a new land, young Ethiopian royalty.

Buckminster Fuller Dreams.
Buckminster Fuller Dreams.

A girl and her boy and the man of her dreams sip coffee in a burned-out café,
The juke-box band should’ve been done long ago.
It’s her first cigarette, and the waitress can’t stop talking.
With artificial joy, the man and the boy make mandalas in their coffee.

Buckminster Fuller Dreams.
Buckminster Fuller Dreams.

Zero, one, one, two, three, five, eight,
Thirteen, twenty-one, thirty-four,
Fifty-five, eighty-nine, one hundred and forty-four,
Two-thirty-three, three-seven-seven, six-ten, nine hundred and eighty-seven…
