Ed Ward’s Monthly Program at the Mercury Cafe (Denver)
As retold by the poet, Jaime De Angelo and published in the Whole Earth Catalog (circa 1976):
Fox was the only living man. There was no earth. The water was everywhere.
"What shall I do,” Fox asked himself.
He began to sing in order to find out. "I would like to meet somebody," Fox said. Then he met Coyote.
"I thought I was going to meet someone," Fox said.
"Where are you going?" Coyote asked.
"I’ve been wandering all over trying to find someone. I was worried there for a while."
"Well it’s better for two people to go together….that’s what they always say."
"OK. But what will we do?"
"I don’t know."
"I got it! Let’s try to make the world."
"And how are we going to do that?"
"Sing!" said Fox.
