On being in Africa

On being in Africa

 Watching zebras in the Ngorogoro Crater.
There are several males chasing a female.
The female leads.
The males follow behind
trying to push another out of the way,
even kicking another in the face–
checking one another
like deft hockey players looking to score–
all in pursuit of the female.

Dancing in a club on New Year’s.
Four beautiful females freshly graduated from “uni,”
as they call it in their Australian accents.
The males move in,
flashing dance moves
they learned on YouTube
or MTV,
with one motive:
to impress.
They push each other out of the way,
flail their legs in the air in break dance moves,
barely missing each other’s faces.

Who will end up with a mate tonight?
