Piano practice

His gloved fingers
whirl white Mexican waves,
prepare to strike ivories
in practiced choral patterns.

A rubber band s-t-r-e-t-c-h
over that distant, black one;
should be played flat,
but it pulled very sharp!

“No matter dear,
the piano is over-sized.”

She comforts, sings as he plays
to drown those mistakes.

Her unbelievable cats’ notes
swell right from an ample chest;
a deep pair of breaths
can make his eyebrows arch
in bristling tom-cat applause.

    Where on earth were you hiding this one!!! I love it!
    The cat parts are particularly sneaky and fun.
