December fragments #22

Beautiful decay…

the piano announces itself

against clouding and unclouding skies

rain darkens it    sun bleaches it

wind ploughs the lupins    the piano sways

eases its joints—moans    settles its pedals deeper

under grass and earth …

—Ross Bolleter, ‘On Piano Hill’, Piano Hill
