The First Place the Random Visitors Stayed

They dreamed of building dome-shaped,
Affordable homes for all.
There were problems with the dream

They seem to not have foreseen—
Hard-to-utilize spaces,
The difficulties of curves

For the local carpenters.
They started with a cluster
Of model units that served

As their proofs of concept and
As a winsome motel called
The Dome Quixote, to show

They understood the nature
Of such romantic folly.
The motel did well, became

One of the village landmarks.
The affordable housing
Made out of domes never worked.

Eventually, they sold
The motel, save the largest
Dome, which they live in themselves.
