I write a spontaneous poem; Roli Frei sings a spontaneous song

I went to Viertel Dach early for this evening's Roli Frei concert so I could eat something before the show. When Roli sat down nearby to prepare his set, I him if he would play his lovely version of The Smiths' "There is a light that never goes out", but he said he hadn't played it in too long. While I ate my cheeseburger, I composed a few lines to describe the evening on the roof, so I asked Roli for a piece of paper, wrote my poem down, and gave it to him with the challenge to improvise a song based on it. And late in his set, he did! (Andrew Shields, #111words, 14 June 2023)
