Mostly Cloudy

bu Martha Landman

Once I was stuck in a Land Rover
horseflies buzzing around the
buffaloes approaching me on
the African savannah I noticed
somehow there were no clouds
the old radio crackled and the
weather reporter reckoned that it
was mostly cloudy elsewhere
my grave concern was to get the
battered engine going my breathing
fast tracked my heart through my
ears and for a second I wondered
if I could cancel this when the wind
changed direction and the buffaloes too.
