Based on ‘Signora Al Pianoforte’ by Giovanni Boldini.
Started 10:34am outside of Stewart. Finished: 12:14pm. My dorm.
Who hands a song to a chorus of one
to hammer each note into place?
Is not the musician, a certain position
assumed in a window of space?
Who lets in and lets out
and so gathers the nails
on the tails of the notes that they form-
from the pulse of the moon,
and the twister in June,
to the bister blown in by the form.
