Cesaria Sings

Cesaria sings
And takes me away
From the gloom
And grey
Of Glasgow
To a world
Of colour and play

Takes me high 
Over endess rows of tenements
Empty bottles of 20/20
And queues for Greggs
That snake round street corners

Within seconds
I'm in a far better place
Sun beating down on my shoulders
As that soothing voice 
Tells a story 
That can change with every play

A song of loss?
Of pain, vengeance or joy?
It's left to the imagination
With those mysterious words
A never-ending toy
