Fake Ivory Keys

February 13, 2008
By Rebecca Kaebnick, Croton-on-Hudson, NY

Sitting upright at the piano
His arms stiff
And legs placed at even intervals by the pedals
His fingers move across the keys
With the even precision
Of a metronome
His face is flat
His eyes hold no warmth
Or light
As he pushes each of the fake ivory keys.
