A plate of thinly sliced Spanish
salami, real cheese – Jarlsberg
I make no apologies, gherkins
and chunky salsa with attitude

it’s just me preparing to watch
Match Of The Night – Rugby of
course, the game from Heaven;
did I mention Sao crackers?

the beer is Cerveza which I like
not just because I make it and
with slice of lime, compliments
of the Orchard which provides

say what you will, I survive on
simple indices and proper taste
developed in isolation – I am
not driven to dreary excess

I’m now ready to trust that the
referee will see the same spirit
blessed by good food, fine beer
& allow a game worth watching
