Thought I Saw David Gilmour

Thought I Saw David Gilmour

I have been captivated by music longer than I have been taken by poetry.  ‘Yellow Submarine’, ‘Crocodile Rock,’ ‘Telephone Line’, ‘Tusk’ – are among my earliest, and happiest, memories.  To think I saw Pink Floyd’s guitar master in a supermarket is a peak experience.  I was mistaken.

Thought I saw David Gilmour

Thought I saw David Gilmour

In Woolies

In amongst the fruit n’ veg.

Well,

Not in them…

But…

In the aisles

Fondling the fruit.

Oh

How I wish you were here!

Momentarily

I assessed the risk

Of approach.

What are the chances?

Thought I.

Were it truly he

Ahh!

I’d be

Comfortably numb.

Echoes

And images

Remain.

Resonances

Shine on

Like a crazy diamond,

Or a crazy dream.
