A taxi from Africa – John McAteer

expecting nothing
when something turned up
winging it as usually so pleased
I was
when it did
and I ordered pizza
cheap wine
and the world was wonderful
though cake would have been nice
and Elvis had left the building
it was like a dream
there was a taxi from Africa
and an answer blowing in the wind
as cars passed by my window
headlights swimming
then nothing
