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.


Not in them…


In the aisles

Fondling the fruit.


How I wish you were here!


I assessed the risk

Of approach.

What are the chances?

Thought I.

Were it truly he


I’d be

Comfortably numb.


And images



Shine on

Like a crazy diamond,

Or a crazy dream.

Daydreaming as a profession

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
