Allotment #2

At the Norfolk Arms
pressed tin and Corinthian columns
smoked jamon and cut glass,

a gilt Madonna hemmed
by dried peppers: W1 espanol.

This neighbourhood’s Georgian,
the pub, named for Norfolk who?

Thomas Howard, the 4th duke,
Norfolk in Sussex, recusant?

The Spanish barman says
of the wine list I stare at
‘the most expensive is the best’

I remember instead the edict
on an album cover
(The Dictators Go Girl Crazy):
‘quantity is quality’
