Maybe it’s an aviary

‘To see the world in a grain of sand,
And heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.’

William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

William could have been writing about today, this place. It’s 5/4 time, techno and castanuelas, on a new tune called, for reference, Macaroon, after the French capital’s favourite sweet delicacies.
Soon enough macaroons in Macroom become kalimbas in Cameroon as we become the Macroom City Orchestra, the Cork and Cameroon district big band.
