American Rainbow

Black lives matter
in different ways
to different people
in the American rainbow
especially bus companies
that bounce over potholes
in the big cities of America.
For them money matters.

If blacks stop riding buses
the buses will be empty
except for other poor folk
white, red, yellow, brown
who don’t drive cars
but are too few to keep
the buses bouncing.

Everyone will understand
that black lives matter when
everyone understands
that black money matters
not to blacks alone but
to all stripes in the
American rainbow.
