Striking toy hammers
on metal grass blades
in trios
to 'Moonlight'
tornado storms
and to 'Reverie'
spiral waves
an orchestra of the elements
in bleeding
rainbow reverb
up close.

Two initials
F and C
a grapheme from wings
of keys, clefs and
medians entwined
to make one
beating heart
felt in stereo
from left to right
and right to left.

Inscribed in gold
1809 1909
a centenary tattoo
on the skin
traced pen dates of
'à Thérèse' and 'Drei Klavierstücke'
the spirit of
Her and Him

This quaint quadrate
of noire and ivory
decorated with
vintage filigree
my piano
at home.
