Accidental

November 15, 2009
I am the yellowed ivory
On the piano we played
When I couldn't reach the pedal
I am those records
You put on the shelf,
The old guitar
Collecting dust in the corner
I am the '90s song
You hear on the radio,
The dashboard in your truck
When we were keeping time
I am the music
Written on napkins and
Scraps of paper
Wedged in-between the pages
Of some '70s piano book,
the love songs you sang
To my mother
Way back when
I'm the past, daddy.
The one wrong note
You can't fix.
