why is it
i ask
that when i sit on the short bench
in front of the beautiful music box
my fingers automatically
brush the high keys?
is it the sound,
so beautiful it is,
or is it the simple fact
that i am right handed?
if my left side
were suddenly dominate
would the deeper sounds
suddenly appeal to me?
or would i still
build a song
with low keys
only to hold rhythm
while my finger tips
made a beautiful melody
and played the tune
with the high keys?

i was inspired to write this because it seems whenever i play the piano i always play the high notes while playing low notes of course but eventually they fade out and all i can hear is the high keys again.
