PRACTICING THE PLAYER PIANO

Not a bit
reticent—the shyest kid

in the world
will grin 
and sit with great 

familiarity 
before a brimming keyboard;  

demonstrating 
publicly—its hale 

and its hearty 
and pure aspirations 

had yearned 
for 
as long 
as they lived—only

to counterfeit, lovingly
hers.

And to think—you and I, 

we must have learned
to be brave

in just
that same way—by behaving

repeatedly—as if
we 
already were.
