Music And Context - Poem by Richard George

Del Amitri, blunt
from a neighbour's house, shotguns
coy church bells. 'I do'.

That tar thrush impet-
uously reeling notes from
our roof: late Coltrane.

Rain on holiday:
'Rhiannon' (Fleetwood Mac) taps
triste picnic windscreens.

At an Oxford ball
a jazz-rat's Gauloises feather
the chord of midnight
