Luck Runs Out

ok MondayI am home, never ever see another VOLVO
That nite on a rainy Autostrada, dark, lanes of trucks, light comes on
URGENT service reqd, engine stops
I am in right hand lane, coast to offramp, park on corner, dangerous,
rest, police tow me to safer, cold night, rain, I think, I do math,
lose car, or pay a bomb to tow, get the fix, another month touring
In the rain I walk
to leave the A, strada is hard, barricades, fences
I climb with my luggage
my heart is
strong, up a very steel bank, slipping sliding, raincoat, leggings, feet soaked
i climb over 8 foot fence , fall into farm lane, a mile to a viilage,
kind man takes me 25km to station, traino Roma, flight home
