Piano Music

Conversation is a harmony to pay close attention to

fault lines like dead notes

in the middle of a tune

the silence arises where velvet meets wood

and there is no music

As the key turns mute

and no amount of playing

can cover the mistake

as the score returns

again and again

to that deadened key

stumbling fingers

forgetting it is broken

yet the note can’t be avoided

just played around as if it isn’t there

but we both know differently

it hangs in the air



that we are not ready to hear
