Caught, Once Again by John D Robinson

A diazepam pickup today,
I made coffee and swallowed
10mg and by the time I
rolled a joint, it’s easy
soft wisdom drenched my
muscles and calmed my
thoughts and I sat
listening to the radio:
George Butterworth’s
‘Banks of Willow Green’
caught once again
in its poignancy and
beauty and I ponder
his death aged 31 in
World War I and how
one time he wandered
just a few miles from
where I live, collecting
traditional folk-songs
and the music ends and
my work’s mobile
phone rings,
I spark up the joint
and hit the
answer button.
