Lattice-work moonrise

Segou moonrise

Once we leave Bamako, the
landscape opens and swallows
us whole. I'm

breathing in our cold-car air.
Brush fire flickers catch my
green eyes as

the flames lick last year's remains.
Tidy rows of messy black ash
streak by and

the sun sets in a dusty
bed. A raincloud grey sky coats
our world. Then,

at 7 Salif says stop.
Unfold from the car. Dinner
inside! Full

moon shines through rough lattice-work.
Change fish'd from a white bucket.
N faa'ra.

San shadows
