Back in Bologna

Lazy late breakfast in this lovely town
- this time in via Clavitura, where
Il Calice has thank goodness reopened. Over there
the bearded bullying patron fusses around
his red check tablecloths and broad bowl
of ice, which will fill later with bottles
of Prosecco and Pinot Grigio (after Giotto?)
A town full of food, art and an academic soul.
But I’ve abandoned all that, thanks,
in favour of a sonnet a day,
a long walk, a good lunch,
the casual observation of assorted cranks,
the internet, perhaps a brief sharetrading foray,
anything to avoid the final crunch.
