The winsome boy
with a three quarter guitar
handsome in a puppy way
having at it
wanting to use everything
to get his music out
except he was half loud
half sung spoken
with enough reverb to kill a cathedral
lyrics of la te da
think of me my love
in a semi drone
striking poses
smiling at the ladies
to bring atmosphere
reflect his cheekbones
so we ignored him
kept on drinking
as other musicians
came in to queue for their spot
to ignore him too
while he wailed at the beauties
who will not
take him home
(Race day Chester, England, Alexanders’ Bar 2017)
