At 2am, camped in these thick eastern woods, I was in the midst of a deep sleep when what startled me but a crash kerplunk bang on the fiberglass roof of the bus, just outside where we slept. - I saw the shadow through the canvas fabric, a dark pointed snout and little wee claws and knew right then that a possum was out there, climbing the roof, sniffing out all the ripe treats hidden in Sunshine. - So I grabbed a book and threw it at the canvas and its pages hit the floor like a falling branch into a pile of leaf litter. The possum climbed for refuge into the patient branches of the old tree above. Relieved, and still half asleep, I rolled over as though I'd never been woken in the first place.
