The drawing, unusually, sold as I added the finishing cross 
Hatching and signature, in the cafe I happened to be 
Working in. One apparently spontaneous and happy buyer! https://www.instagram.com/p/CRrhrIOn7xj/?utm_medium=copy_link

- what’s that loping music I 

- ah, they called it ‘jazz’. Feel
The edgy atmosphere it embodies. 
It’s got tension inbuilt. ‘Twas
The advanced harmonies 
Employed. All those sevenths and thirteenth chords - mucks about with 
Your ears... makes sense, but
Has plenty of dissonant
Buildup, then resolves.

- I love it! That rhythm..?

- oh yeah. They played 
With the beat. The bluesy stuff often brought to mind a 
Feeling of a sort of edgy and
Urban outsider. Like a soundtrack for the disaffected or downtrodden.
Criminal underworlds. Those
Who had to go outside the
Shitstem so to speak.

Bronwen took off the headphones and resumed
Writing in her diary.

Leon picked up the electric
Mandolin, and switching
On the amplifier he strummed a few licks then
Meandered off on an improvisation that sounded
Like a theme tune to a 
Children’s cartoon from a few centuries hence, albeit with
16c overtones. 

L stopped abruptly and, throwing down the instrument lolled back in his
Rocker and dozed off.

B went to the pub.

The cat set off on its nightly
Rounds of the local middens.
