is it coo coo to Bossa Nova?

Brazilian money

has interesting colors

south of the equator

is that cicadas

or crickets

or simply tinnitus?

while Sacajawea


the color of money

the color of money

a bright bright sun

the color of tan

the color of tan

color commentators

tell us that

only the poor

in America

are fat

but in Rio and Sao Paulo

(the big tourist hotels

that Sugarloaf looms over)

in Manaus (outside the Opera House)

and Brazilia (in the government plaza)

gangs of homeless boys

are shot by police and shop owners

but we all want to go

to Carnival
